The rose, which has been climbing the facade for decades, is decked with its short-lived white blooms. It will be followed by clematis, jasmines and climbing hydrangeas. The English-style flower beds and the higher areas bordering the lawn contain a mixture of trees, shrubs and flowers chosen to produce a harmony of blooms that is renewed throughout the year: rhododendrons, peonies, lilacs, wild garlic and wild lilies in Spring, delphiniums, verbenas, campanulas and roses in Summer, and anemones, phlox, coneflowers and hydrangeas in Autumn. In Winter, the garden is given structure by the imposing form of the magnolia, a Quercus myrsinifolia, which is evergreen, and the few clumps of box scattered about the foreground.
