This colorful plant combination will cheer you up for weeks from early to late summer. Easy to replicate, this naturalistic planting is ideal for lazy gardeners who wish to put very little effort into a beautiful and low-maintenance garden.

This gravel garden lends itself to Mediterranean-style plants such as Silvery-gray Eryngium giganteum (Miss Willmott's Ghost), scarlet Heleniums 'Moerheim Beauty' and 'Sahin's Early Flower', rich violet-blue Lavandula x intermedia 'Grosso' (Lavender), lime-green Euphorbia cornigera (Horned Spurge) and Stipa tenuissima (Mexican Feather Grass) whose silky flowerheads move gracefully in the slightest breeze.

Deer or rabbit resistant, all plants provide plenty of nectar and pollen for visiting insects, and make excellent cut flowers too!
