This particular garden was a reworking and reshaping of existing beds. The River Birch and very mature Magnolia grandiflora were to remain along with the Arum lilies and Buxus Balls. The plants specified and laid out were to give a cool subtropical temperate feel with a twist of contemporary cottage style.
The Buxus, Indian Hawthorne and Loropetalum were planted to give the bones and shape of the garden whilst the soft flowing foliage and flowers of the Salvias, Helichrysum and Heliotropes were to give a softer edge to the beds. We also added a double flowering White Angel Trumpet tree to the corner to give some height and add a splash of whimsical to the corner.
