Piet Oudolf is a master plantsman and “gardener” and an acknowledged expert at the art of creating perennial gardens hence his plantings for James Corner’s award winning “High Line” in New York and Kathryn Gustafsons “Lurie Garden” in Chigago and numerous other famous plantings  in pubic and private gardens all over the world.
