Sparoza - Woodland Border

The photograph at the top of this page shows the Woodland Border in January (Photo Lucinda Willan)

The trapezoidal bed of the Woodland Border is the shadiest area of the Terraces, overhung by the outstretched branches of the Searsia lancea, the Dancing Olives and two Ailanthus altissima. It is a bed full of shade-tolerant plants, delicate bulbs and low-growing shrubs with a green carpet provided by the creeping Tradescantia fluminensis and different Oxalis species.
