|Warm spring display at Chanticleer's Gravel Garden|
These photos show just a small, upper section of the Gravel garden. The entire Gravel garden encompasses quite a large area at Chanticleer as you descend to the ponds. After the lush woodland, this is a sunnier spot all in orange, red and white. The blue grass foliage adds depth to this basically warm floral palette.
|The golden foliage and red seeds on this Japanese maple, Acer palmatum 'Osakazuki', is a great way to open the color scheme for this gravel garden.|
|White Tulip 'Triumphator' is an excellent tulip to add some light to a warm-toned spring planting. Behind it are Aquilegias and Geums ablaze for the spring!|
|If you are looking for this garden, it is in the upper part of the Gravel Garden. When you peek over the white tulips (above photo) you can see down the gravel slope to the wisteria-covered pergola. (More on that soon!)|
|Clumps of blue fescue (Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue') add a color contrast for the orange.|
