Considering the effects of the storm, planting this time around called for a little more resilience. “The plants were inspired by my visits to Cape Cod," says Lewis. "The cape is covered with rhododendrons, scrub pine and grasses. When I see that a plant can thrive without any irrigation or maintenance in poor soil, I know it will be a winner."The designers refined the plant selections by looking around at what plants had survived the hurricane. “We drove around Long Beach, New York, and saw all the Hollywood junipers were thriving, while many other evergreens had died,” says Lewis.
