Come April 17th the world will have even more for which to thank Julie Newmar (above and beyond that of those articulated by Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo).  From 12 noon until 4 pm just a day before taxes are due, Ms. Newmar’s garden will officially be added on the itinerant list of the Pacific Palisades 2016 Garden Tour.  Lush with roses and secret enclaves, this TV Icon and Tony winner’s green thumb is truly the gift that keeps on giving!

Additional varieties of gardens featured on the tour: a cut-flower shade garden and orchard, a GreenPoint rated water-wise landscape garden, a sculpture garden featuring complementary concentric landscaping, a school vegetable garden abundant with farm animals, an oasis garden with all manner of capricious attributes, a succulent hillside garden, and the N/E/X/T garden in Temescal Canyon highlighting native plants of California and xeriscape garden! Highlighted gardens reside in Pacific Palisades, Brentwood and Santa Monica including Yamaguchi Nursery and Merrihew’s Nursery.
