The Big Idea:
The grass was high and the stone walls were falling down when Camille began to reclaim what looked like a meadow beside a charming stone garden shed. The shed, which matches the stone arches of the allée, had overgrown ivy blocking the door and windows. Camille cleared the ivy and replaced the old door.
The Plants: Over a hundred single and double herbaceous peonies in pink and white emerged in long borders after Camille cleared away brush and stones beside the fallen-down walls. The peonies are deer resistant and provide Tudor Grove's primary floral color.
