Longue Vue in New Orleans: A Garden Full of Flavors
Designed by Ellen Biddle Shipman and considered to be one of her most intact works, Longue Vue is a destination garden when visiting the Big Easy. Opening September 26th, Longue Vue presents The River Between Us, an interior and exterior art exhibition. See slide 11 for details.
Docent Sue Barton has given house tours for over 22 years and created flower arrangements for the house for 10 years. Here, she gathers Louisiana iris blooms. Longue Vue’s iris collection contains over 3,000 plants and produces an incredibly colorful show March through mid-April. The presence of the rust colored wild iris, Iris fulva, brings forth the possibility of endless variation of color in natural and man-made hybrids.
