|Lancewoods and mini toitoi (Chionochloa flavicans) in C4|
Courtyard Four - NZ native theme, with mostly foliage contrasts and bird attracting plants, rather than lots of flower colour. This garden has really filled in, helping create a secluded garden environment. The feeling is more tranquil than the other three more colourful courtyards.
Courtyard Three (below) - lots of pinks, purples and white for flower colour. Some of the original plants from the old Glenwood site were transplanted into this courtyard, including these paeonies, and also some Memorial Iceberg Roses.
Below, one of the seating areas alongside the public footpath that will eventually be screened from the street by a hornbeam hedge and the dark Physocarpus 'Shady Lady' shrubs seen here on the left.
Courtyard One (below) - dark red foliage, with mostly scarlet and white flowers, make this quite different from the other three courtyards. All the courtyards have trees within them that will help soften the stark concrete walls.
|Alstromeria and Geum|
|Rhododendron 'Bumblebee' looks fantastic with yellow!|
