A Garden for All Seasons Garden Plan
All Season

Putting this four-season bed together is like preparing a stew: A little bit of this, a dash of that, and before you know it, you've got something cooking. And like preparing a great dish, the secret to this garden is to follow a recipe. Hardscaping, structure plants and colorful annuals and perennials keep this garden looking good whatever the season.

Featured plants include red-osier dogwood, fountain grass, daylily, aster, allium, Russian sage and more.
