Selection Of The Month: The Garden Club Of Palm Coast’s monthly garden by Nancy Iandoli

Elena and Viktor Zadorozhny of Eric Drive have been recognized as the November2022 Selection of the Month by The Garden Club at Palm Coast. Elena and Viktor lived in New York for 20 years before retiring and moving to Palm Coast.
This very diverse landscape along with its terra cotta roof, driveway and all the garden edging displays curb appeal. The driveway is unique with a spade-shaped grass island which showcases a Queen palm.
Visitors are greeted at the front entrance with the fragrant white flowers of bridal bouquet frangipani (plumeria) and magenta and white flowering bougainvillea. Color abounds with large Petra crotons, Hawaiian Ti, dwarf bottlebrush, bush daisy, pink penta, dusty miller, and other perennials.
The left side garden has a tall multi-colored metal art spinner and a large coquina rock that is surrounded with many plants such as: catharanthus roses (periwinkle), five-night blooming jasmine, agapanthus, bush daisy, bird of paradise, plumbago, and a small Chinese windmill palm.
The pool area has a beautiful white marble Mermaid fountain with a background of tri-color ginger, gladiolas, peace lily, split leaf philodendron, and a red desert rose. The very deep lot contains many edged gardens of various plants as well as sweet bay laurel, loquat, a Valencia orange tree, a sago palm and a Norfolk Island pine. This landscape has so much color, diversity, and beauty it truly deserves the “Selection of the Month” recognition.
