Shrubs and perennials are also planted together to
create both borders and dense beds. Occasionally, annuals are
used to fill open space in the flowerbeds. They are mainly
used in different patterns and color schemes in more formally
designed beds.Annuals improve and
brighten the gardens, and they are replanted throughout the
season. Replacing the annuals allows the gardens to maintain
their vibrancy (3).
The plantings shown in the virtual tour are based on
lists of plants from Morrill’s notations, and historic
pictures and maps of the time.
