Dell: Mass plantings of astilbes bloom in succession all month long – feathery
plumes create a sea of pink, white & red; paths edged with rare hostas and other shade
•Rest in the cool shade of the maples and
enjoy the soothing sounds of the waterfall by our lily pond; pond edge hosts many marginal
plants such as ligularia, iris, peltiphyllum, calla, and lobelia; also is the home of our
resident turtle, Henry.

July/early August; daylilies, pholox, yarrow and many other hardy perennials create a
tapestry of colour amongst fountains and formal annual beds.

masses of floribunda roses, colourful annuals in beds and containers.
