Canterbury Square; Condo Renovation
Cast Iron Plant flanks this walk. It's habit is just like it's name suggests. It is tough in dry dense shade. You can count on it looking green year round.
The mondo grass will made a nice carpet in the cul-de-sac plantings. It spreads and looks like a grass but will not need cutting. It stays green even in a drought.
This grass looks more like the Miscanthus Karly Rose that we swill use in the parking areas. It is soft and will not need pruning like a shrub. Once a year, the blooms will be cut off in the spring.
Miscanthus Sarabande will add a soft texture and colorful blooms to our perimeter wall plantings
The Arborvitae Degroot Spire will make a nice hedge without overwhelming a small space 12' x 4' .Perfect for our perimeter wall. Who needs a Leyland Cypress!
The Japanese Plum Yew is fantastic in shade. Look at the texture and it's upright form.
The Aucuba picturata has such nice contrast in the foliage such as this yellow centered variety. Great for some color in the shade.
Small mahonia with nice winter bloom in the shade.
A part of the Southern Living Plant Collection. Super color that we love in a Loropetalum with only a 1-2" height. I love it!
Glossy Abelia. Close up of the Flowers
Glossy Abelia. Little Richard is a 3' x 3' variety nice for foundation planting
The large glossy foliage on this Chindo Vibernum is similar to a magnolia. It grows faster and has a truer green than the magnolia. This makes a perfect background or screening plant maturing at 15' tall x 10' wide
Gardenia 'Kleim's Hardy' will be 4' x 4' and provide a nice fragrance near outdoor spaces.
The Blue Point Juniper provides a nice color contrast to the more yellow green plants. In this photo, the shrubs are planted too close together. These will ultimately be 10' tall and 6' wide with room to spread. Perfect for our perimeter wall without being too tall.
Ginko Tree: Beautiful yellow fall color, slow growing and statuesque shape
Fantastic spring color. Silver cloud variety has variegated foliage. Beautiful for adding a light touch of highlight. These under-story trees don't overwhelm the landscape and add a lot in a very sunny locaton
Slow-growing symmetrical and classic boxwood.
Beautiful fruit on this dogwood too. Kousa Dogwood
The Kousa Dogwood is a beautiful under-story tree that should be used more. It blooms later than flowering dogwood and is not susceptible to the anthracnose disease that affects cornus florida.
