Today’s combo from the Cotton-Arbo retum includes dwarf golden Hinoki cypress (Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Nana Lutea’, USDA Hardiness Zones 4-8) and masterwort (Astrantia major, Zones 4-8). It’s a delicate, subtle combo, one you don’t notice right away, but it’s beautiful!
Mindy Arbo, who gardens at the Cotton-Arbo retum, her private-turned-public garden in Winchester, Massachusetts, is a master at mixing evergreens with herbaceous plants. This week we’re highlighting five of her awesome combos.
If you can’t make it to the Cotton-Arbo retum in person, you can visit them online here.
