She has used Agave attenuata as the sculptural accent planting amongst an array of other softer shapes such as Aeonium, Festuca, Iris and Kniphofia, and Rosmarinus, just to name a few. Read more...

The Landform garden was designed by Catherine MacDonald and sponsored and built by Landform Consultants. It won Gold and Best Summer Garden and it wasn’t difficult to see why. The planting in this garden – rich and warm and perfectly in tune with the steel pergola and grey boundary fences. http://blog.lisacoxdesigns.co.uk/tag/coastal-drift-garden-2012/

Hot-colored flowers—coral aloe, chartreuse euphorbia, lipstick pink grevillea, and, yes, kangaroo paws again (this time in bright orange)—add punch to the outer garden, while a judicious splash of blue Senecio mandraliscae tones down the heat. Sunset Magazine.

This is a corner of a garden I designed in Andalucia. In the foreground is a fine specimen of Trachelospermum jasminoides which has turned red in the Winter cold. It is grown along a wire fence and is turning into the hedge which I'd envisaged. In the background is a large specimen of Fucraea longaeva (2.4m in height), Cordyline australis 'Torbay Dazzler' and Melianthus major. There are olive trees in the background.
