Edna Walling



Edna Walling garden 'Appledore', 1936, Eaglemont - one of the few gardens by Walling remaining in the suburb. Walling, a prolific horticulture writer, became one of Victoria's best known landscape artists incorporating local plants and stones into her irregular plantings. 

'Walling began her career in 1919 after graduating from Burnley Horticultural College. She sought to achieve a unity between house and garden, and was influenced by Italian and Spanish gardens in her use of pergolas, walls, steps and paths.' State Library of Victoria.
