Watching the sunset over Quonie Pond is a magnificent sight enhanced only by the beautiful gardens surrounding this lovely home; new to the Shelter Harbor community within the last couple of years Perimeter plantings are primarily natives in keeping with the surrounding environment. Lively summer color is provided by the more structured gardens around the house, while variegated and varied foliage fills in when the flowers are not in bloom. A focal point not to be missed is the dry stream bed, created as a clever driveway drainage solution. Plants of note include dwarf Mountain Laurel, Endless Summer and Quickfire Hydrangea, blush Knockout Roses, Rose of Sharon, Potentilla, Caryopteris, both rust and burgundy colored Coral Bells (Heuchera), Whirling Butterflies (Belleza), Astilbe, Sedum, Lady’s Mantle and the natives: Viburnum, Dogwood, Plethora and Itea.
