Hummingbird Cottage (8 photos)

Garden #64, San Jose


Showcase Features: This garden is a wonderful example of what can be done under a mature redwood tree. A collection of native grasses and rushes thrive in the shady area under the redwood. The sunnier areas of the yard have a series of raised beds bordered with stones, with a bush poppy as a focal point. A decomposed granite and gravel flat area by the street gives people access to the yard.
