Alphabetical Plant Listing

A Brightly Colored Path


Awash with color, these terracota slab stones steps are closely adorned with Verbena 'Homestead Purple' (Verbena canadensis), a vigorous, award-winning perennial that blooms its heart out in a profuse display of rich, bright purple blossoms from late spring to frost. As a way to smooth the path turns, Mexican Feather Grass (Nassella tenuissima or Stipa tenuissima) has been interplanted. This exceptionally lovely and graceful ornamental grass exhibits silvery-green thread-like leaves that sway gracefully in the slightest breeze, delicately softening the landscapes. 

A charming garden path, created by Derviss Design, where it is a real pleasure to walk along. 

All plants are deer, drought and dry soil tolerant. Enjoy!
