Deb Shumlin's Garden

Here are some photographs of Deb Shumlin's garden. I have been helping her with maintenance for the past three years, but this year we have been spending lots of time re-structuring and re-organizing her garden and plants. We moved numerous small trees and shrubs and have added new plant material in order to extend her fabulous June garden into fall and winter. The gardens were originally designed by her great Aunt, the late Alice Holway, a renown plants woman of Putney, so the bones are good and the plants choice!

Amsonia 'Blue Ice'

This Amsonia is a real knockout! This was plant was found in a seedling block with Amsonia tabernaemontana at White Flower Farm in Connecticut and its parentage is yet to be determined. Another taxonomy mystery!
