Green garden plants

In the Green garden the flowers are fewer and nearly all white�Campanulas macrantha alba and persicifolia, Lilies, Tulips, Foxgloves, Snapdragons, Peonies, Hellebores�giving just a little bloom for each season to accompany the general scheme of polished and fern-like foliage. A little bloom of palest yellow shows in the front in May and June, with the flowers of Uvularia and Epimedium. But the Green garden, for proper development, should be on a much larger scale.
