We’ve visited the garden of Carla Zambelli Mudry in Malvern, Pennsylvania, many times. Most recently she shared the early blooms of spring with us (Celebrating Spring With Carla). Today, we’re back to see the garden in high spring glory.
Spring has been beautiful this year, albeit cooler. A few of my favorite plant sales have returned, so I have been planting what can take the current weather and staging other plants in the greenhouse. The azaleas are blooming, and peonies are starting to open.
A brilliant cherry-red tulip (Tulipa hybrid, Zones 3–8) is edged in white.
A small garden sculpture sits amid the opening fern fronds (Matteuccia struthiopteris, Zones 3–7).
Bright gold-green new leaves on a Japanese maple (Acer palmatum, Zones 5–9) contrast with the darker green of the ferns behind.
The delicate-looking blooms and foliage of this epimedium (Epimedium ‘Domino’ or a similar hybrid, Zones 5–8) belie its durable, easy-to-grow nature.
These gorgeous blooms of a tree peony are white dusted with the lightest possible shade of pink.
