American Garden Plant List

The American garden bursts into life in late spring and early summer. There is mass planting of ornamental grasses and flowering perennials which bring wonderful colour and are great for attracting bees and butterflies. Autumn brings sublime leaf colour on the many Rhus shrubs planted here. Poplar trees add height and prominence to the garden all year round.
