The video below is a collection of images of plant material I have gathered from Edgartown on the island.  Edgartown is one of the more horticulturally significant areas on the island, and the yards in the historic district follow a distinct pattern.  The gardens are anchored with a solid evergreen base.  The needles add texture to the composition, and contrast against the predominately white buildings.  Bright annuals are used for accents of color, and other plant species with variegation or white blooms act as a moderator.  Check out the short video below to get a better understanding of the plant palette in Edgartown.

Live well and be well,
