Welcome fall with the beautiful blooms of an autumn classic: New England aster. This beauty offers blooms in a host of hues, including brilliant purple, pale lavender, pink and ruby. Asters beckon butterflies and bees with their blooms, providing an important food supply to pollinators from late summer into fall. Asters have a tendency to flop. Plan to prune in early summer or stake in autumn. ‘Purple Dome’ plants grow 18 to 24 inches tall and 12 to 18 inches wide. Hardy in Zones 3-8.
Traditional Dining Room With Rustic Table
This all-white traditional dining room features a rustic wooden dining table with black-and-white cushioned chairs, a modern, black chandelier and light hardwood flooring.
This unique home office provides an unobstructed view of the outdoor park by using glass to create the desk. The green Eames chair mixes perfectly with the modern design and blends in with the floor-to-ceiling window.
A dramatic entry to the garden features large native and tropical trees to help hide the view of the property from the street. Horizontal fencing, sculptural palms and large masses of tropical understory all help to create the sense of a lush, expansive entrance.
Pattern and texture bring layers of interest to this small and functional home office, from the herringbone wood floors to the paneled accent wall. A red desk chair stands out as the main hit of color in the clean, modern space.
Beautiful flowering plants and manicured hedges surround the sophisticated crushed gravel patio and koi pond. Hand-stacked stone above the waterfall mimic architectural elements found in other parts of the garden.
