The year gets off to a colorful start with bowls of amaryllis followed by the bright yellow and fragrant branches of canary broom contrasted with deep blue anemone poppies. The spring months bring tall flowering spikes of forced perennials such as foxglove, larkspur, and lupines, and a brief appearance of the fragrant, purple-boughed wisteria trees. In the summer, the pool is filled with a variety of tropical foliage and flowers. In the fall, the gallery is filled with baskets of cascading and specialty mums.
