Garden Design using Perennials

/, Flowers/Garden Design using Perennials

Here is a garden we did earlier this year. Until some of the flowers get going, the leaf texture is what we concentrated on in the design for early Summer.

There is the frilliness of Fennel, the fleshiness of Canna Lillies, the bright orange and yellow of Heleniums and Hemmerocalis, the silver of Artemesia and Cynara and the purple of Lobelia ‘Queen Victoria’ and a Black Adder Phormium.

With a mixture of exotics plus traditional plants like Fennel a Perennial Design can really be a woven tapestry of shapes and colours.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
