The Layered Garden
Brandywine Cottage is David Culp’s beloved 2-acre Pennsylvania garden where he mastered the design technique of layering — interplanting many different species in the same area so that as one plant passes its peak, another takes over.
A nonstop parade of color that begins with a tapestry of hellebores and heirloom daffodils in spring and ends with a jewel-like blend of Asian wildflowers at the onset of winter.
