O is for Piet Oudolf

Piet Oudolf is the maestro of perennial planting.    Aged 71 but he is still working – both designing and teaching.  He continues to innovate and  bring in change – there is nothing static about his plant palette.  The photo below is his garden.  The fantastic white spires are of   Actaea Queen of Sheba.

  • A brilliant designer with the added ability of being able to spot special plants and introducing them to nurseries. We have visited almost every garden he has designed in the UK several times but never visited his own garden in his home country. A great man!

  • I have visited several of Piet Oudolf”s UK designed gardens. They are wonderful and feature in two of my slide show presentations. I think he is one of the most influential designers of our time.
