What Houzz contributors are saying:
Tapering poplars are the only tall trees on the perimeter of the garden. Their height stands out, forming a tall, green border around Jakobstuin.
In this perennial meadow surrounding a farmhouse outside of Amsterdam, the designer planted varieties of flowers and ornamental grasses in loose clumps, mimicking the way they would grow and spread in nature. Flame red crocosmia (Crocosmia sp.) grows alongside orange sneezeweed (Helenium sp.) and purple-blue giant hyssop (Agastache sp.). The gray-green and blue-green foliage of the perennials and young ornamental grasses forms a cooling counterpart to the fiery blooms.
