The Cloister Garden in William Christie's 16th-century house in France features the classic rose Katharina Zeimet. "The garden is very personal and breaks all the rules," Christie says. "But I am immensely happy and proud of it. I spend as much time as I can here. I don't need to take vacations anywhere else."
Astilbes in a woodland garden. There is no distinguishable pattern to the colours, but the random placement of plants work because the hues are complementary. This blends so well with the natural stone rock walls.
