Mill Fleurs, the garden of Barbara and Robert Tiffany in Point Pleasant, Pennsylvania, is both personal and unique. It occupies a streamside site with massive rock outcroppings and steep, wooded slopes. The design objectives are to bring cohesiveness to a great diversity of plants by grouping them by genus whenever possible; to organize the garden into color families; and to present plant collections in an interesting way. The Tiffany’s stretch horticulture and hardiness zones by planting every possible species of any genus they can grow.
