BIG AND SMALLS
orking within an area that spans from USDA
zone 6 in Ohio to zone 3 in parts of Canada
can be tricky. What Burt might favor for Cleveland
might not fare as well in Nova Scotia, meaning her
palette often changes depending on the design location. She emphasizes the importance of staying
local in materials and plants, and tends to favor
palettes that are hardy enough to last.

1 AESCULUS PARVIFLORA
(BOTTLEBRUSH BUCKEYE)

Native to the eastern part of the United States, the bottlebrush buckeye
can grow to 16 feet in height with a
spread of 15 feet at maturity. Its large,
showy white flowers attract butterflies
during the months of June and July
when it blooms. It is hardy to zone 4.

CAREX PENSYLVANICA
(PENNSYLVANIA SEDGE)

ILEX VERTICILLATA
(COMMON WINTERBERRY)

A useful ground cover for heavily
shaded areas, this woodland sedge
has a soft, billowing habit that reaches six to 12 inches. It is native to the
eastern part of North America and
prefers dry soils, but can tolerate wetness. If left to its own devices it can
self-seed and spread by rhizomes.

A deciduous holly native to swampy
areas in eastern North America, the
common winterberry has a great
tolerance of wet, heavy soils. Both a
male and a female plant are necessary to produce the brilliant red berry
display that persists through winter,
sometimes even into early spring.

CORNUS FLORIDA
(FLOWERING DOGWOOD)

4 MERTENSIA VIRGINICA
(VIRGINIA BLUEBELLS)

Preferring sun to partial shade, the
graceful flowering dogwood, commonly grown as a small tree, is susceptible to various diseases and pests
when stressed. Burt says she would

color to shaded areas, this Hakone
grass is a low-lying ground cover
that slowly spreads and clumps to a
height and width of 18 inches. The
foliage darkens to a pinkish hue during autumn.

The Virginia bluebells serve as a
refreshing sign of spring as they
emerge early in the season. The
flowers first appear a delicate pink
before maturing to their namesake
blue. They prefer part to full shade
and die down to the ground with the
coming of summer.
NYSSA SYLVATICA (BLACK GUM)

One of Burt's favorites, this magnificent North American native is
prized for its brilliant and consistently excellent display of autumn
color. It can tolerate both wet and
dry soils to varying degrees due to a
long taproot; however, this makes it
hard to transplant large, established
trees. The female trees produce edible sour berries that attract wildlife.
RECLAIMED/SALVAGED MATERIALS

Whether using boards from a demolished building or discarded concrete curbs, Burt has found ways
to reuse local materials that would
otherwise have been thrown away.
This may sound like the makings
of an eclectic, kitschy design, but
these kinds of pieces are so seamlessly integrated into a design that
it seems as though they have always
been there.
