South Roanoke Project

A 1914 home in Old Southwest Roanoke gets a more colorful and bright garden design to match its updated interior, which was designed by Edith-Anne Duncan of Blacksburg, VA. The interior of the home was featured in Southern Home Magazine in January 2021, and I wanted to honor its colorful but classic update. Many native plants were featured in this garden design, such as Hydrangea quercifolia (oak leaf hydrangra), Chionanthus virginicus (fringe tree), and Chrysogonum virginianum (green n gold). I wanted to show that native plants have merit and deserve a space in the garden. The species selected for the outdoor space were also based on a Tommy Mitchell commissioned piece, whose metal flowers reflect birth days and significant memorable moments for the homeowner, such as daffodils, David Austin climbing roses, snowdrops, iris and yellow tree peonies.
