PLANT PAL­ETTE

Homes+ (Australia) - - MY BACKYARD -

The front gar­den of Lucy’s home is bor­dered by tall rhodo­den­drons, aza­leas, hy­drangeas, daphnes, camel­lias and al­most 30 Ja­panese maples. The back gar­den has a se­ries of ter­races – kitchen plant­ings of cit­rus and herbs be­low the back deck, then a paved ter­race ringed by laven­der bushes which over­looks a ter­race of six olive trees. A lower ter­race fea­tures banksias and waratahs, and a large tree fern gully leads down into a na­tive gar­den that ends in tall stands of moun­tain blue gums and val­ley views.
