THE .PINEHURST OUTLOOK
Mahonia, a real tree of box, fine ivy
carpets, red cedar, mock orange or
cherry laurel, and on the end of the cook
house near by one can see what English
ivy can do in two seasons growth.
At the entrance court are camellias,the
fragrant honeysuckle, the finest youpon
of the town with its small evergreen
leaves and brilliant bead-like berries,
banana shrub, the hemlock tree of the
North, the Chinese arbor vitaea, Japan
quince, which is so subject to the San
Jose scale that it is going out of use,the
big leaved Japanese privet, the small
leaved Chinese privet, the winter jas
mine, yellow jasmine, roses, Indian cur
rant, holly, dogwood, red bud, gall
On the eastern piazza is a noticeably
fine curtain of ivy and a big plant of the
climbing Eleaganus. Here too is a
Chinese Wistaria, the gift of Mrs. Mc
Kenzie, of McKenzie's Mills, to Mrs.
Priest, who planted it with her own
At that Spanish structure, the Casino,
are appropriately placed the four yuccas,
Spanish bayonet (Y. aloaefolia), bear
grass or Adam's needle (Y.fillamentosa),
the great bear grass (Y. glorisa) and the
Colorada yucca (Y. augustif olia) .
On the slope and roadside northeast of
The Carolina is the European corsican
pine which grows even more rapidly
than the native long and short leaf pines,
both of which are here, together with
red cedar, dogwood, red maple, red bud,
plum, callyanthus or sweet shrub, calli
carpa or mulberry shrub, all natives.
N. b. This list of Carolina plant neigh
bors could be doubled yes, tripled, by a
Concord A fine Spanish bayonet
and Dttfder cedar is here and in the back
ground the Bootan pine, Pinus excelsa.
These two foreign cone bearers grow
with great vigor here.
Craddock The value of the Chinese
privet as a porch screen is indicated here.
Cypress Tree planting here is a va
ried one with many species represented
upon a small area.
Cedars Fine hardy olive, Japan
quince, and McCartney rose plants are
here and a cedar of Lebanon.
Dartmouth The beginning of a gar
den plau is represented by the line of
shrubs that sit back from the sidewalk,
in which are choice varieties of old
camellias that came from the Mass
achusetts Agricultural College conserva
tory. Dogwood This cottage has two of
its namesakes on either side of the en
Elm The tall and low gall berry are
here in creditable groups, but the elm
has yet to be planted.
Holly Inn The two holly trees at the
entrance are the finest in the Village and
the Las Tunas cactus so common in Cali
fornia gardens, is here. Ivy ground
cover about the buildings and in the
roadside plantations is particularly good.
There is also under the wax myrtle on
the inside of the curb of the sidewalk a
cover of the creeping St. Johns wort.
The cedar and pine grove back of The
Inn and the varied plantations at the end
of the Village Green in front are among
the earliest made and represent a growth
of about twelve years.
Hale It would seem that the flowers
were striving their utmost to keep an
open smiling face in memory of the
great good man for whom this cottage
was named. There were flowers in the
old New England bridal wreath, on the
winter Jasmine and on roses not far
away on December 10th.
Honeysuckle There are honey
suckles here but the notable feature is
the careful training of Cherokee roses
and ivy to form a piazza screen.
Hazelwood Not a hazel in sight.
There is a patch, however, not far from
the station that would be happy in a new
home. One of the best English laurels
in town is here, however.
Ivy A privet proposition. There are
ivies in sight on other cottages but so
far this one seems to have forgotten why.
it was so named.
Juniper The finest McCartney rose
in town is on the piazza. It is also dis
tinguished by an ivy on an old pine, a
gardenia and a native cyrilla plant.
Laurel One of the best Akebia vines
in town is here and a rose running into
the arms of a forked black Jack oak
makes this grim reminder of the sand
barrens a happy object. There are fine
evergreen wax myrtles here, and the
ivy ground cover under roadside shrubs
Lenox Here are the best specimens
of Phillyrea augustifolia and Osmanthus
illicifotia in town, both rare, slow
growing evergreen shrubs that are
worthy of more extended use at Pine
hurst. Magnolia Near this aspiring struc
ture are more fine magnolia trees than
are to be found elsewhere in town.
Marlboro The evergreen mock or
ange and evergreen honeysuckle pre
dominate here. Two round topped
bunches of honeysuckle branches at the
end of long stems above the piazza eaves
suggest the use of this plant to secure
decorative effects similar to that of for
mal plants in tubs.
Mistletoe The Deodar Cedar in
front of this cottage is probably the fin
est exotic conifer in the Village. In the
roadside shrubbery are several Chin
Maple Chiefly privets here.
Palmetto Here again privets pre
vail. The house may have its palmetto,
however, for young plants from Florida
