Purple and pink lupin: They grow wild in Yosemite, and the color worked well for the “purple mountains.”
Two different grasses: Hello, meadows.
Blackberries and nigella pods: texture and woodland weirdness
Two different ferns: We saw lots of these on the trip!
Purple astilbe: gorgeous color and fuzzy texture
Chocolate cosmos: dark, rich shadows
Cut Flower Garden I always buy from Eden Brothers online, not only do they have a wide variety they sell in bulk. I take a handful of each variety, mix them all in a bag, and broadcast them over the soil. No neat rows for me, it’s just a lovely mix of color when it all starts to bloom.
