It is a perennial mix. Mostly Nepeta and Sage and I believe there are some Heuchera in there as well.

Pretty sure that is not ceris, leaf is wrong size and shape. Maybe a Koelreuteria?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Billy Goodnick added this to How to Pick the Right Garden Ceiling
What about starting a new tree from a container or bare root? That can take some time. Caecilius Statius, a Roman poet in the third century B.C., reminded us, “He plants trees to benefit another generation.” While it’s not likely you’ll crank up your time machine and ask the previous owners to get a tree started for you, you should seriously consider the tree’s speed of growth. The double-edged sword that comes with planting fast-growing species is that some don’t know when to stop and are often short-lived. But if the budget allows, large trees can be purchased and planted, usually with the aid of a long-reach crane. If you do decide to plant a tree or three, a primary consideration is whether the plant loses its leaves in the winter or remains evergreen. Your garden will be welcoming through more seasons if the tree sheds its leaves and allows warming light to reach you on a cool day. But be prepared for some autumn raking, and add those leaves to your compost pile for an extra benefit.
