A dozen pink-flowering sargent cherry trees (Prunus sargentii ‘Columnaris’) form a circle in the northwest corner, backed by a dozen columnar junipers (Juniperus chinensis ‘Hetzii Columnaris’). Five purple-flowering redbud trees (Cercis canadensis  and Cercis reniformis ‘Oklahoma’)  shade the patio, along with one specimen Japanese maple tree (Acer palmatum var. dissectum ‘Crimson Queen’). Three river birch trees (Betula nigra ‘Heritage’) provide organic contrast against the sharp buildings. Large understory plants include crape myrtles (Lagerstroemia indica ‘Natchez’), hollies (Ilex cornuta ‘Rotunda’ and Ilex verticillata), cherry laurels (Prunus laurocerasus ‘Otto Luyken’), sweet box (Sarcococca hookeriana var. humilis), azaleas (Rhododendron ‘Gumpo Pink’), summersweet (Clethra alnifolia), bluebeard (Caryopteris x clandonensis), gold thread falsecypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Filifera aurea’), forsythia (Forsythia suspensa), fothergilla (Fothergilla gardenii ‘Mt. Airy’), red-twigged dogwood (Cornus alba ‘Argenteo marginata’), and oakleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia). A wide variety of perennials provide color in all seasons, including heaths (Erica x darlyensis), lavenders (Lavandula angustifolia ‘Munstead’), ferns (Athyrium felix-femina ‘Frizelliae’), hostas (Hosta ‘Francee’), bleedinghearts (Dicentra ‘Alba’), daylilies (Hemerocallis x hybrida ‘Stello De Oro’), silver mound (Artemesia schmidtiana ‘Silver Mound’), and black-eyed susans (Rudbeckia fulgida ‘Goldstrum’).
