Summer Flowers

Another clementis climbs the pergola in the entrance to the perennial gardens.  This variety features off-white blossoms tinted with shades of blue and purple, which do not show well under direct sunlight.

The wonderful clethora (summer sweet) hedge encloses part of the tea garden.  One of the stone islands lends depth and structure to this presentation.  The fragrance is strong and pleasant.

The bayberry bushes, developing ground cover, and yellow yarrow bushes line the path through the perennial garden.  A timber fence raises this side of our display with height and color.

A pretty blue balloon flower shows early color.  This part of the garden evolves into a moonlight display, reflecting the full moon with light-colored dusty miller and similar plants.
