Ligustrum ovalifolium

California Privet

Lilacs are particularly good for planting immediately outside the garden enclosure; also the Japanese Snowballs, the Rose of Sharon, and Deutzias. It is here that we may use the shrubs of upright character that produce their greatest wealth of bloom toward the top. Berried plants should also be considered in these plantations. The Wayfaring Tree (Viburnum lantana), Hercules' Club (Aralia spinosa), Photinia villosa, the Hawthorns, Burning Bush (Euonymus), Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida), Bush Honeysuckle (Lonicera), and the deciduous Holly (Ilex verticillata), arc all adaptable to such a purpose. Additional Winter color may be secured by planting the red and yellow twigged Dogwoods and, if the scope of the plantation admits, a few Red Birch.

The keynote of a successful garden setting is to so plant and arrange it that it will have the appearance of having existed before the garden was formed.

Water In The Garden

A water feature (Fig. 137) is by far the most delightful note in the garden and gives added interest by reflecting the color of the flowers on its surface. It has the additional attribute of attracting the birds who come for their morning bath, thus adding a pleasing touch of life to the scene, usually augmented by a grateful carol of appreciation. More detailed notes on this subject will be found in the chapter on architectural features of the garden.
