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.

Love these flowers - What is the name of the tall round purple flowers in this picture? Do they need full sun?

Thank you, so much. I Googled allium and you are absolutely correct. There are many varieties and they come in different shades of purple. Some varieties are even white. They will make a lovely display in my garden this year.
