The designer choreographed plants in an array of colors that change with the seasons. The meadow garden has junipers and pines that provide hues of green year-round. Perennials add lots of purples, pinks and yellows in spring and summer. There’s a wide range of foliage that goes from light green to burgundy to brown through spring, summer and fall. And a mix of grasses adds softness and movement until the snow falls. Plants like redtwig dogwood (Cornus sericea) and coral bark Japanese maple (Acer palmatum ‘Sango-kaku’) provide winter interest and stand out against the black walls and the white snow covering the ground. Sifford has provided a thorough plant list for the meadow garden divided into categories.
