Exuberant Cottage Garden

In the front garden Jon planted shade-loving hydrangeas, phlox, impatiens, and ferns. “I don’t really pay attention to color schemes,” he says, “except in the garden with the hydrangeas.” There, white flowers brighten the shade of the oak tree, while fuchsia and hot pink accents relate to the lavender-blue Scaevola that fills the basin of a large fountain.
