Foremost among those ideals is a sensitivity to color and line, which is, in part, what makes this garden so suited to the seasonal splendors of autumn and early winter. As the hazy days of summer are replaced by crisp fall weather, individual species become more visible, suddenly distinguished from the mass of greenery that defines the muddled depths of midsummer heat. Color is everywhere, announced by the crimson, auburn and yellow of maples, beeches and yellowwoods, all breaking out of their conformist green to mingle with the phosphorescent gold and mauve of ornamental grasses waving in unison across the rolling landscape. Then, when winter arrives, a new dimension takes shape: stark collages of pendulous berries, sculptural twigs and colorful bark.
