So pretty! Silver Scrolls Heuchera - shade plant

Centaurea cineraria 'Colchester White'. annual.

Salix nitida (creeping willow)

Echinops ritro ruthenicus. Undemanding, unfazed by heat & happy as a clam in ordinary soil with some drainage, “Globe Thistle” is a simple to grow, magnetic choice for the dry garden. Impressive, 3” across, richly colored blue “golf balls” stand out on strong multi-branching ghostly white stems above finely cut, shimmery silver foliage to 2’ across. Mid-Summer to Fall blooms.

Rose Campion. Actually a biennial, but it self seeds so it seems perennial. Flowers in spring/early summer. Flowers are vividly colored. Leaves are fuzzy like Stachys. No/lo watering.

Paronychia kapela....Can be used instead of creeping thyme as it has no mold 'issues'. Prefers a sunny site and can withstand temperatures down to -17,7º C. It grows best in sandy-gritty soil that is dry but tolerates a range of soils.

Tanacetum densum --good photo.(partridge feather)

drought tolerant, low-growing, low-maintenance plant This Sedum has blue-green, succulent foliage, and it only reaches a few inches in height. As the weather warms, the foliage turns to a silvery blue-gray color, and it has a soft feathery feel to it. Can bear some wear and tear such as light walking. Although it is a sun lover in mild climates, this perennial prefers some afternoon shade in areas with extremely hot summers. Porous well-drained soil is essential.

Silverheels horehound (Marrubium rotundifolium). This native plant from Turkey thrives in moderate to dry soils, growing to just 2 to 4 inches tall and 24 to 36 inches wide in full sun in a wide range of soil types. Tends to mound up on itself over the years, but the only real trimming it needs is to remove any withered or dead stems in late spring. Cut back if you feel it is taller than you'd like.

Tanacetum densum (partridge feather). Plant in full sun in well drained soil. Tanacetum prefers to be planted in sandy soils... but will adapt to most soil types except hard heavy soils. Fairly drought tolerant. Max 10 in. Bulk seed spread for easy start. Member of tansy/feverfew family.
