Parlor Garden, 2007 - Gardeners of Simsbury

This award-winning perennial garden, anchored by a mature Weeping Higan Cherry tree, was in the process of a redesign when the gardeners found a previously unknown well shaft as they were preparing the new beds. The raised beds feature plants popular in the 18th and 19th centuries such as bachelor’s buttons, phlox and dianthus.
