When designing a successful garden, one must consider not only color and bloom time, but also texture, leaf color, heights, winter interest, and the unique microclimates throughout the space. A blanket of soft whites infuse this Woods Hole cottage garden with classic charm. The garden gets its primary structure from multi-stem ornamental trees and holly shrubs sprinkled among the perennials and ferns. The monolithic line of oak leaf hydrangeas is used to reinforce the walk to the front door and also provides loose structure to this part-shade garden. The delicate fern leaves are artistically showcased when paired with the backdrop of an oversized hosta leaf.
