Huntingbrook Gardens, Ireland

This public garden is one of Ireland's most small yet impactful and it was created by the acclaimed Irish horticulturist Jimi Blake. Composed of a terraced garden, long borders, and a valley consisting of a naturally fed mountain stream, this place is thriving with life. Jimi Blake is known for his colorful plant combinations and I was inspired by his use of warm color contrasts. Vibrant pink Astilbe next to bright orange Hemerocallis with Thalictrum flowing over the top had me so interested in the garden space. We had the chance to meet and talk with him about his planting style and how much he enjoys testing the limits of color schemes.
