Alphabetical Plant Listing

A White and Blue Garden


This peaceful haven is part of Andrew Grossman's own garden located in Seekonk, Massachusetts. It looks like an Impressionist painting but this is real. Extensively flowering from Spring to Frost in geographic areas where the average minimum winter temperatures are higher than -28°C or -20°F, this is a place where wandering is a marvelous renewing experience. This beautiful garden was started in 1998. While always evolving, its basic structure and planting were finished in three months. Following a blue and white pattern, a mulched pathway leads down to a rectangular lily pond. What a gorgeous display of colors!

April - White & Blue Garden by Andrew Grossman

Monet would have surely enjoyed placing his easel between these Thuja Occidentalis Nigra and play with his French Ultramarine blue, Windsor violet and Titanium white colors.

This garden is a superb mix of shrubs and perennials and offers a generous display of colors during most seasons, each of them bringing new prima divas: Daffodils (Narcissus), Tulips and Creeping Phlox in spring, followed by the Iris, Azalea and Delphinium in early summer. Later in the season, white and blue Hydrangeas steal the show in concert with the Avalanche Lilies.

The ultra blue Delphinium belladonna is a nice spicy touch of color that will persist until fall, just like the Nepeta Six Hill Giants by the lily pond.

August - Blue & White Garden by Andrew Grossman

Considering the number of plants and their different needs, this garden requires a fairly high level of maintenance such as deadheading, shrub pruning, weeding but how good it must feel to sit and relax in this chair and let your eyes embrace this lovely scenery!
