>The week of August 25-31
In the Garden Hall Courtyard a terrific late summer grouping of Anemone x hybrida ‘September Charm’ (Japanese Anemone) with Anemone x hybrida ‘Party Dress’ (the darker pink of the two anemones). In the foreground, Tricyrtis ‘Tojen’ (Toad Lily).
In the Water Garden North:
Sedum spectabile ‘Brilliant’ (Showy Stonecrop) with Sedum ‘Postman’s Pride.’ Both are terrific selections and are hardy to our climate. They show well even through winter after their flowers have dried. Postman’s Pride is a dark-stemmed variety gaining popularity.
In the Garden Hall Courtyard:
Acer palmatum var. dissectum (Dissectum Group) ‘Garnet’ (Japanese Maple) with an underplanting of Hakonechloa macra ‘All Gold’ (Japanese Forest Grass)
