Garden Gallery: Marella Agnelli’s Marrakech Garden

12/06/2012

marella agnelli garden by madison cox in marrakechI admit I am a little fascinated by past generations of beautiful socialites (I find these slightly historical characters far more salacious and interesting than the more boring celebs that fill People Magazine).   They were beautiful, worldly, rich, beautiful (did I say that already?), political, influential, literary, and incestuous as hell (amongst their elite group)…and many were not only gardeners and supporters of the industry….but garden writers.  C.Z. Guest and Marella Agnelli are two of the most prominent (are their others?).

I love the perfectly placed clusters of lily pads — that I am sure are highly cultivated to be so evenly spaced.  I’d like to see a picture of the gardener maintaing this feature….What do you love about this garden?

    What I like about it is there are no flamboyant roses or cube-shaped metal pots. He found a graceful way to make it beautiful without the flamboyancy.

  2. Art says:

    A wide ranging, international, and exciting plant choice complement a modern interpretation of Moroccan vernacular gardens and architecture. A beautiful gem indeed! The fan palms are questionable, it being Africa- but fast growers until the dates- gently rising above the olive canopy- can take their place above the classical pavillion. Im gaga for the papyrus in the first picture…

      Art – papyrus makes me gaga too– when I see it growing outside, I know I am not in New England anymore (and usually am in someplace much more exotic).
