Carville M. Akehurst, a former partner in a Perry Hall nursery who ran one of the nation's largest nursery trade shows, died Friday at Franklin Square Hospital Center. He was 70 and had developed complications from a hip fracture. In the 1960s, Mr. Akehurst cultivated and patented a new variety of azalea with reddish peach flowers called "Tropic Sun." "It was lovely, like the tropic sunset," said his wife of 40 years, the former Nancy Brown. With his brothers and father, Mr. Akehurst was a partner in Akehurst Nurseries until 1973, when he sold his interest to devote himself to several horticultural organizations.

Colleen Akehurst is the kind of teen-ager who has a signed photograph of President Clinton shaking her hand. She's also the kind of person who cringes at the notion that she's a model teen-ager.But facts are facts: She did meet the president at the American Legion Auxiliary Girls' Nation conference last summer and she is president of the Maryland Association of Student Councils, an organization that represents roughly 200,000 secondary-school students in the state.Last year, the Bel Air High School senior was one of three students who led the legislative lobbying effort to win voting privileges for the student who sits on the state board of education.

The business began in a small greenhouse heated by a wood-burning furnace. In 1876, Charles Akehurst, who had immigrated to Maryland from England, launched a home-based operation growing flowers and vegetables to sell. Four generations later, Akehurst Landscape Service Inc. in Joppa has grown into a multimillion-dollar business. Today, three generations are involved in the business, and the younger family members are unanimous on the key to its success: William E. Akehurst, president of the company.

Homeowners anxious to dispel the winter blues and change the whole look of their gardens are not alone, local landscape architects, designers and installers say. Americans spent $3.1 billion on landscape design in 2002, according to the American Nursery and Landscape Association (ANLA) and $28.9 billion on landscaping-related services. The days when a few azaleas and a Bradford pear were considered sufficient to give a home's exterior a gracious look are gone. Today's residential landscaping is much more sophisticated, professionals say, aimed both at creating a soothing retreat and an environment where families and friends can gather to socialize and unwind.

When Jean Akehurst patrolled the floors at Johns Hopkins Hospital on the evening shift, insecure young interns felt safe. They knew that every nursing position would be staffed, every difficult patient calmed, every hard-to-find medicine located.She was the classic head nurse, and for more than 30 years she dressed and acted the part. No one remembers a wrinkle on her starched, white uniform, or any time that she stepped outside her businesslike demeanor.But after Akehurst died last fall at age 79, she surprised former colleagues with a bigheartedness many never knew she had. Hospital officials learned in May that she had left the institution $1.2 million.
