All About

Myrtle flanks the front walk. Pleasant to brush up against, its aromatic leaves release a lovely scent when bruised. Its flowers, also fragrant, appear off and on throughout the year, mainly in the winter and spring. Not only was myrtle an important plant in the Victorian garden, but it's also drought-tolerant.

Planters filled with drought-tolerant perennials like pennisteum, vinca 'Variegata' and heuchera help anchor the entrance. Pansies add bright spots of color.
