Virtual Garden Tour: Stonecrop Gardens: Part 2

On our sunset tour of Stonecrop Gardens, we approached the charming (and organized) potting shed. Surrounded by raised stone beds and trough gardens planted with tiny alpines and sedum.

Other raised stone beds were planted with juniper and sweet autumn clematis that trailed down the stone wall, tumbling along the grass like a flowering ground cover.

Sedums and alpines artfully planted in mounds inside the troughs and stone beds create miniature landscapes full of contrasting colors and texture.
