A design mix for a new small seating section of the front garden:
Inspiration is H.F. 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
