Boccelli Garden at the End of the Season


  1. Looks like the public spaces are looking beautiful in Peterborough! That last Boccelli shot of a border planted on a slope is very nice - the elevation lets you see all the plants so well.

  2. Thanks Cyndy,

    The Boccelli Garden does have a very nice placement in town against a granite wall. It displays well from the street and up close; at least I like to think so.

  3. Hi Mike, I have admired your gardens for many years now. Thank you! I have always wondered what the name of the tree is in the far end (away from the street) of the Boccelli Garden is. It has such beautiful foliage in the summer and I love the shape. Can you tell me what that is?
    Thank you!

  4. Hi Alex,
    I love that tree as well. It is called Aralia elata 'Aureavariegata'. It is hard to find and pricey but worth the effort. It is the happiest aralia I have ever seen in any garden. Not entirely sure why. It was about 2 feet tall when I planted it about 10 years ago. It is now creating a shade garden on that far end of the garden.
