North Arlington Residence

The Upper Garden with 'Ha-Ha' wall: One side of the sinuous retaining stone wall is faced with stone, the other face sloped and turfed, forms a green pool for the upper garden. The ha-ha wall backed by Annabelle Hydrangeas conceals the driveway from sight and extends the view to the lower garden as one looks out from the house through the Zelkovas.They are planted between the hydrangeas and act as a first buffer to the busy street set behind the Lower Garden.

Wild Hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens) For a classic white garden flower, turn to wild hydrangea. This eastern U.S. native and its cultivars grace gardens across the country and around the world. These flowering perennials are actually considered pretty easy to grow, despite their delicate appearance, as they tolerate a wide range of soils and sun conditions. Since they flower on new wood, winter freezes don’t affect flowering. Cultivars like ‘Anabelle’, shown here, produce larger blooms, while the straight species is smaller and wilder in appearance. Caution: The leaves, buds and flowers are toxic to people and pets, and can be harmful if consumed in sufficient quantities. Bloom season: Late spring through much of summer Cold tolerance: Hardy to minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit, or minus 40 degrees Celsius (zones 3 to 9) Origin: Eastern Kansas east to southern New York in the north and Louisiana and northern Florida in the south Water requirement: Prefers moist (not wet) loamy soils Light requirement: Prefers partial sun but will tolerate full sun if given consistent moisture When to plant: In spring or fall in containers; plant divisions in early spring before the plant fully leafs out
