A sensual garden
This is a sensual garden, one to walk through slowly, following the winding paths from the sun-filled front garden filled with deer-resistant euphorbias, barberries and dwarf conifers, round past the heavily underplanted apple tree and the “boggy” patch in back with moisture-loving gunnera, willow, skunk cabbage (Lysichiton americanus), and ‘Mammuth’ ironweed (Vernonia arkansana cv.) to a circle of lawn that offers a remarkable 360-degree view of Paul’s dense but artful plantings.
