The planting scheme for this woodland garden in North Vancouver included a diversity of plants. Perennials offer bold foliage and bright blooms, adding texture and movement to the garden. Boxwood and evergreen azalea hedges establish structure, while woodland favourites like rhododendrons and hydrangeas, provide screening as well as flowers. A lower canopy of medium and small ornamental trees (Acer japonicum 'Acontifolium', Acer palmatum 'Emperor 1', Cornus kousa 'Venus', and Magnolia sieboldii) add interest and establish a human scale in the landscape, so that the existing large conifers do not overpower the garden.
