Wishlist For 2014:

December 29, 2013

A design mix for a new small seating section of the front garden:  

Inspiration is HF Du Pont’s Sundial Garden at Winterthur – spring color progression choreographed to change gradually, week by week.


Snowball Viburnam (Viburnum x carlcephalum) – pale pink flower buds which open into big round fragrant flowers

Chinese Snowball Viburnum  (Viburnum macrocephalum ‘Sterile’)– large flower heads and a jolt of chartruse

Bridal Wreath Spiraea (Spiraea x arguta) – cascades of white flower sprays

Japanese Quince formerly ‘Apple Blossom’ (Chaenomeles speciosa ‘Moerloosei’)– Pink-flowering 

Red-flowering Quince (Cydonia jaonica rubra ) Always a favorite and one of the first to bloom in the spring
