Les Jardins de Kerdalo
The Four Squares

The four squares, located in what used to be the farm’s vegetable garden, originally destined to house Peter Wolkonsky’s iris collection, were flooded in Autumn 2002 and overrun by weeds. They were completely redesigned and replanted by Timothy Vaughan between 2002 and 2004.

In Summer this area is a palette of pink (Penstemon ‘Evelyn’ ; Persicaria affine ; Allium sphaerocephalon or Salvia x superba ‘Tänzerin’) and of blue (Geranium ‘Rozanne’) highlighted by touches of bright yellow (Hakonechloa macra ’Aureola’), which can be admired from the guardrail. This vantage point not only provides an opportunity to admire the symmetries and geometric forms of the Four Squares, but also affords a view of the distant Golden Heath.
