Textured foundation planting

This foundation planting can handle the tough, hot conditions created by lots of concrete. And on top of adding lots of color, the plants in this plan provide tons of interesting texture, from the disease-resistant shrub roses to the attention-grabbing grasses. Don’t want to take care of containers? Trellises and vines with large flowers or leaves will add height contrast, instead.

Salvia Marchus, 8"-12", The perfect Salvia for planting in containers or as an edging. Marcus is a dwarf form of Salvia growing to only around 12 inches tall. The intense dark purple flowers will remain all summer if regularly deadheaded. Plants are very compact and bushy and have very nice olive-green foliage. Plants look very good when planted with soft yellows such as Coreopsis 'Creme Brulee'.
