Viburnum davidii

The focus during the next couple weeks is on the beauty of winter landscape. The gardens are fully adorned in Christmas décor and to truly appreciate the beauty of the garden you need to view it from a totally different perspective. Slow down and take the time to observe the gardens structure and the many unique landscape features that are much more apparent during this time of the year.
