Plant Combinations

Mary Reid wove burgundy plants, including Eucomis comosa 'Sparkling Burgundy,' Weigela florida 'Wine and Roses,' Leucadendron salignum 'Summer Red,' Echinacea purpurea 'Bravado,' and Penstemon 'Hidcote Pink,' through a cluster of yellow-green euphorbia, santolina, and silver grasses.

zinnia angustifolia 'profusion white', rudbeckia hirta 'prairie sun', pennisetum villosum and chenopodium botrys 'ambrosia mexicana'

In this rich tapestry of colour, texture and shape together with the dark green of the rhododendron is the acid yellow of the golden locust tree (Robinia pseudoacacia 'Frisia') and the bright yellow foliage of Choisya ternata 'Sundance' bringing out the blue undertones of neighbouring plants. For additional summer interest there is the variegated hosta.
