GARDENS Mixing Old and New “The real transformation of the garden happened with planting. Boxwood edging and globes in the parterre garden gives the space structure. Hydrangea and azalea offer alternating blooms and color, and are complemented by effusive plantings of seasonal annuals, perennials, and groundcovers,” states Landscape Architect Cindy Cline. The front garden is a perfectly kept parterre of boxwoods with seasonal blooming plants in each quadrant. The white azaleas had already bloomed and when Peachy photographed the garden the magnificent foxgloves in shades of pinks and purples were at their peek. They will be followed by hydrangeas and agapanthus. The owners asked for multiple seasons of color in a range of blues, lavenders, whites and cool pinks. This is accomplished with a mix of hydrangea, camellias, ferns and other perennials to offer something in bloom all year long. JUNE JULY 2014 45
