When I gave species yarrow the front yard for its very own, I wasn’t thinking about Vita Sackville-West’s famous white garden.
The other night, I glanced out the dining room window to discover a small meadow of white yarrow flowers illuminated by street light and backed by dozens of blossoms of a heavily doubled old rose. The yarrow flower heads appeared to float eighteen inches off the ground.
Sackville-West’s garden was designed to be enjoyed at night. One of the great joys of her school of landscaping is that ordinary plants are used generously and to good effect.
