About C.Colston Burrell

C. Colston Burrell is a garden designer, award-winning author, photographer, naturalist, and teacher. He grows hellebore species and hybrids alongside natives and other treasures in his garden in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Charlottesville, Virginia. Colston holds two master's degrees: one in horticulture and one in landscape architecture from the University of Minnesota. He is a lecturer in the College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the University of Virginia and principal of Native Landscape Design and Restoration. He is the author of many garden books and has twice won the American Horticulture Society book awarda"in 2007 for Hellebores: A Comprehensive Guide and in 1998 for A Gardener's Encyclopedia of Wildflowers. Colston is a contributing editor for Horticulture and frequently writes for Landscape Architecture and American Gardener. He lectures internationally on design, plants, and ecology. Judith Knott Tyler and her husband, Richard Tyler, have owned and operated Pine Knot Farms since 1982 on land that has been in Judith's family for six generations. Pine Knot is a wholesale and retail nursery specializing in herbaceous perennials, with an emphasis on hellebores. An artist by training, Judith channels her creativity into making gardens, layering the forms and textures of plants into living sculptures that change with the seasons. Judith brings a magnitude of life experience to her nursery work including time spent landscaping, producing vegetables for a communal farm in Canada, and even tutoring underprivileged children. Hellebores fascinate Judith because as she says, "Any plant brave enough to reach its peak flowering time during the dull days of late winter, deserves a place of pride in most gardens. If we consider the wide range of conditions many of the species will tolerate, there is truly a hellebore for almost any garden."
