Lanterns add instant intrigue to garden nooks.  Grouped with daphnes, lomandra, hydrangea for low highlights and camellias, maples, cercis for high shelter, this stone lantern pulls several elements together.

At a height of 24" and balanced on a large stone, the lantern provides a solid foil for all the soft foliage.  The wide hood is an easy resting place for the eye, with all the leaf shapes and colors radiating into the distance.

For special evening occasions or a random Wednesday, a candle can cast a soft glow over the garden, adding to the mood.
