Azaleas, Camelias and Roses….Oh My!

 

With the azaleas in full bloom at DeBordieu, I went out yest

erday to take some pictures of some of our homes currently on the market. By chance I ran into Mr. Don Mabe, who invited me to take a look at his garden. Mr. Mabe’s home is at the end of a beautiful cul-de-sac in the DeBordieu Golf Course community.

Being the wise businessman he is, (former CEO of Perdue Chicken), Mr. Mabe had the foresight to also purchase the lot next door, both of which back up to a nice big pond, and are loaded with gorgeous Live Oaks.
He started creating his garden 16 years ago. Today, with Mr. Mabe’s hard work and tender loving care, it looks absolutely magical. He had some expert advice along the way from Mr. Bobby Mottern of Brookgreen Gardens, and Mr. Neal Cox of Arcadia Plantation, for which he is extremely grateful.

The variety of azaleas in his garden range from Formosas, and George L. Tabers, to beautiful Naturals. But that’s not all. Because we had such a cold winter this year, the

camellias were delayed in blooming. So right now, they are blooming right alongside the Azaleas! The camellias range from Premium Cs and Lemon Glows to the Mary Alice Cox Camelia named for Mr. Cox’s wife. In addition, the Lady Banks Roses delicately dangling from the tree branches, and the Confederate Jasmine climbing the tree trunks made for a truly memorable experience. And some really great pictures! Mr. Mabe’s home, and garden, are not for sale, however, there are some other beautiful properties available. For information, please email me at TroiKaz@DeBordieu.com, or call me at 843-455-4523. DeBordieu Colony is an oceanfront community located just south of Pawleys Island, South Carolina featuring private golf and tennis, saltwater creek access to the ocean, a manned security gate, and luxury homes and villas surrounded by thousands of acres of wildlife and nature preserves.
