I’m not sure how I feel about this little patio at the Cross Estate Gardens in Bernardsville, New Jersey. I like the globe/circle theme, but perhaps they should have embraced it a little more whole-heartedly and put another globe-shaped shrub in the central pot. Or maybe a massive fountain of miscanthus, perhaps ‘Morning Light’ (Miscanthus sinensis ‘Morning Light’, USDA Hardiness Zones 5-9) to create a stronger focal point. What do you think?
