Romantic Tarrytown Terrace

Often, less is more. Take this landscape design composed of climbing roses, hydrangeas, and lilies surrounding a bluestone terrace. This small, suburban garden feels both expansive and intimate. Japanese forest grass softens the edge of the terrace and adds just enough of a modern look to make the garden’s owners, urban transplants, happy. “My husband and I were looking for an outdoor space that had a secret-garden feeling,” says homeowner Anne Lillis-Ruth. “We’ve had fun adding furniture, antique planters, and a stone fountain to [landscape designer] Robert Welsch’s beautiful landscape. The white and green plantings provide the perfect backdrop to my collection of colorful table linens, glassware, and china. We love our garden!”
Dean Fisher loved it, too. “The setting is so lovely and relaxed. It evokes the south of France, with its intimate scale and the integration of house and patio through the use of the vines and other plantings.”

Hi Nan, I recommend enhancing the soil with organic material to help with drainage. Add peat moss and organic compost.

Hope this helps!

Also, limelight prefers some sun. ( at least 6 hrs). I am in zone 7 with clay soil, and I grow little limes in full sun. This holds true for most all of the panicle varieties. It is the others that do better in shadier spots.

Hello Rodger Brook, thanks for your question. I googled your request and came up with this link from "Gardening Australia" :

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Fenton added this to Have a Ball With Hydrangeas
A Tarrytown, New York, terrace is planted with Hydrangea paniculata, whose flowers form a cone-shape panicle. While white blooms do not usually change color like pink or blue specimens, they may mature to pink in the fall.
Paintbox Garden added this to 20 Ways to Work White Magic in Your Yard
17. Fill a space with shrubs. Use panicle hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight', zones 3 to 8) with frothy Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa macro 'Aureola') to screen a fence and create a full border with lots of visual interest.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Garden Alert: 22 Plants to Keep Away From Pets
Though hydrangeas are garden showstoppers, symptoms range from oral irritation to gastrointestinal distress to depression for pets who eat them.
White in the garden. Zero in on any flower, like the fat hydrangeas shown here, and you will find a hint of green, sometimes blue or blush pink or yellow. Any of these color combinations would work well inside the house — just think of using white as a main color and use a fresh, spring-garden shade of another color (green, blue, pink) in small touches.
