Southern Courtyard Garden Plan Southern Courtyard Garden Plan

This formal courtyard reflects Southern conservative tastes and history. And in a mild climate, this mix of plants performs year-round. The terrace gives plenty of room for a table and chairs to enjoy the pretty setting and have a cup of coffee. And a hedge of camellias gives some privacy from the neighbors. The repeated crape myrtles in the four corners of the garden give the space a sense of formality.

Featured plants include crape myrtle, camellia and periwinkle.
