HGTV Gardens online recently gave some love to Charleston gardening legend Patti McGee.

The website currently features nearly 70 photographs of McGee's "exquisite" shade garden, noting that her "walled garden (is) the perfect illustration of how to make shade beautiful."

McGee is a founding member of the Charleston Horticultural Society and a 2012 Honorary Member of the Garden Club of America. McGee's work is represented in the Smithsonian's Archives of American Gardens.
