Dana Gallagher photographs an article for T Magazine focused on the perennial planting movement that’s starting to take hold, especially in dense city environments. Dana traveled to Cape Cod to capture pictures of the meticulously curated garden of this Nantucket home.
Designed by Piet Oudolf, this garden uses romantic drifts of native American grasslands and perennial flowers that are beautiful yet low maintenance. Oudolf is the designer responsible for the greenery on New York City’s High Line and the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millenium Park – bringing nature into the city so to speak. Soon we think his horticultural philosophy will extend beyond New York and Chicago and everyone will start to adopt a wilder way.
