One year after planting, today I detailed this garden: staking, weeding, shearing and deadheading. This is my first garden design to incorporate those plants and ideas from my trip to England in 2012. This small front bed was a blank slate. The building's Arts & Crafts style is the theme for this planting.
Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light', Verbena bonariensis, Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Golf Ball Kohuhu', Astelia chathamica 'Silver Spears', Achillea millefolium 'Moonshine' with Geranium 'Rozanne' and Erigeron karvinskianus.
Thuja occidentalis "Emerald Green' sentinel guardians.
Senecio mandraliscae (Cool) vs. Asclepias curassavica (Hot)
The collection of terra cotta pots is my attempt to recreate the charm of the entry at The Great Dixter. This greatly respected garden utilizes the ethos of the Arts and Crafts movement.
