by Letitia Baldwin

asticou azalea garden and thuya garden

The Asticou Azalea Garden is a public garden in Northeast Harbor, Maine that was designed and built by Charles K. Savage in 1956.  Incorporating Japanese design, the Azalea Garden showcases native flora, in combination with azaleas, rhododendrons and other specimen plants, many of which were transported from the Reef Point Estate of Beatrix Farrand.  The Azalea Garden book details the history and creation of the garden, including the influential individuals that have shaped what it is today. A foreword to the book is written by the late Beth Straus, Honorary Chair of the Azalea Garden Committee and Life Director of the Land & Garden Preserve.


The book was originally printed in 2008 as a commemorative 50th Anniversary edition and sold with the Thuya Garden book in a two-volume book set.
