A sunny cedar deck

A newly installed deck and custom planters needed greenery and style. This sunny location bordering an open school yard was prime for a bright yellow and white floral garden. We planted cannas, lilies, lavender, lambs ear, asclepias, and lantana adding Italian sunflowers along the back cedar fence. Fragrant white moonflowers climb an iron trellis, varieties of buddleia attract butterflies, and magnolia and dogwood trees anchor the design bringing early spring blossoms. Herbs and nasturtium provide seasonal scent, color and flavor.
