Spring be Far Behind?
week’s guest is Charlottesville, VA garden designer C. Colston (Cole) Burrell.
Cole has devoted a lifetime to studying native plants in the wild and in
gardens, which led to undergraduate degrees in Botany and Horticulture. He
believes that good design emerges from a strong sense of place, and as a
result, evokes powerful emotions. His own garden certainly reflects this point
of view (below).
Cole is principal of Native Landscape Design and Restoration (NLDR@aol.com),
which specializes in blending nature and culture through artistic design.
Projects include prairie and wetland restorations in parks and on corporate
campuses, as well as numerous residential gardens of all sizes. Cole is the
author of twelve books devoted to plants and ecologically-based home landscape
design. We talk about the coming events in his garden, things to do, and on a
grander theme – gardening with native plants in existing landscapes and new ones.
