Belmont Hill Residence

The master plan for this south-facing woodland property celebrates dramatic topography, muscular canopy trees, remnant fieldstone walls, and native stone outcroppings. Sound vegetation management principles guide each phase of installation, and the true character of the woodland is revealed. Stone walls form terraces that traverse native topography, and a meticulously crafted stone staircase provides casual passage to a gently sloping lawn knoll carved from the existing hillside. Lush perennial borders and native plant stands create edges and thresholds, and a crisp palette of traditional and contemporary materials merge––building upon the surrounding topography and site geology.

Aren't those great? It is Salvia 'May Night'--very durable and reliable bloomer throughout the season.

what is the silvery plant between allium and salvia?
   Comment   January 7, 2014

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The mounded forms and spires of the perennials, ornamental grasses and inkberry contrast with the boxy shape of the house. "The plantings are seasonal," explains Cunningham. Waves of color from different plants bloom throughout the season, while glossy and silvery leaves provide contrast for most of the year. The plant selection includes Russian sage, giant alliums, salvia and white peonies.
Frank Organ added this to Lessons from Monet's Garden
One of the basic tenets of Monet's gardening was to create harmony in the plantings. We can see here how that idea has been used in a modern scheme, with the purple salvias blending beautifully with the globe-headed alliums.
