I stumbled upon this little stairway vignette a few years ago on a garden tour hosted by Tangletown Gardens in Minneapolis. I love how the white pots harmonize with the birch’s bark, and how the designer kept the plantings understated but still interesting. The tree is gorgeous – why not try to play up its best feature rather than use it simply as a backdrop?
