The preferred aesthetic of a Scholar’s Rocks is based on
subtleties of color, shape, markings, surface of wood,
and sound. Prized qualities include awkward symmetry,
resonance of sound when struck, resemblance to
mountainous landscapes and texture. Stones are often
displayed on a wood pedestal that has been carved
specifically for the stone.
Scholars' Rocks also known as Gongshi have been
collected for aesthetic and religious purposes evolving
from the use of larger stones in gardens for over 1,000
years. These stones were also used by scholars (also
known as literati) for meditation and inspiration.
Scholars' Rocks can be a variety of stone, set on carved
rosewood pedestals. With a range in form and color,
coarse or smooth and have dramatic form meant to evoke
feeling from the viewer.

Lord & Schryver Conservancy, Salem, OR
The Lord & Schryver Conservancy is delighted to welcome
visitors and tours to the Gaiety Hollow gardens.
Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver frequently opened
their gardens to visitors eager to see their timeless
beauty and we are happy to continue that tradition.
Mature hedges and shrubs form the backdrop and “bones”
to the seasonal display flowers. Visitors in spring
enjoy a gorgeous array of camellias, azaleas,
rhododendrons, tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths. Later
in the season, beds overflow with colorful old-fashioned
flowers like Canterbury bells, zinnias, marigolds,
heliotrope, and delphinium. In late summer, the dahlias,
asters, and other late-blooming plants will steal the
show. NEW! Docent-led Garden Tours will take place
during Open Garden Sundays at 2pm.
