The article features the miniature shady woodland garden made by Bryan Noyes. According to the author, Noyes studied books, catalogs, and natural woodland in finding hardy, shade-loving, drought-tolerant classics suited for the climate in Washington D.C. It stresses that by sticking with the soothing color scheme provided by the white-blooming cherry tree and azaleas, Noyes chose several different hosta varieties, ferns, European ginger, sweet woodruff, astilbe, and hellebores.
