  • Saucer Magnolia Branch, South Lawn

    South Grounds
    Rose Garden
    flowers
    This photograph is a closeup of a flowering branch on one of the Saucer Magnolia trees planted in the Rose Garden in 1962. The Rose Garden is located on the west side of the South Grounds, just outside the Oval Office. It has gone through several incarnations: a vegetable garden in the first part of the 19th century, a “colonial” garden in 1902, and then replaced with a rose garden in 1913. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy wanted to expand the garden for official functions and events. His idea became the Rose Garden, designed by horticulturist, gardener, and close friend of the Kennedys, Rachel Lambert Mellon. The garden was installed the following year, becoming a green theater for official ceremonies and a special place for the first family’s private enjoyment. James P. Blair photographed the blooms in April 1966, during the Lyndon B. Johnson administration.
