A Charming Mediterranean Stone Path

Plant Combinations, Spring Borders, Summer Borders, Fall Borders, Winter Borders


Who wouldn't want to stroll along this beautiful and fragrant pathway where clumps of Tulbaghia violacea spring up between the ornamental grass, Stipa tenuissima?

Fast growing and versatile, Tulbaghia violacea (Society Garlic), also known as pink Agapanthus, produces rich pink flowers that float atop their slender stalks. It provides year-round interest in Mediterranean-climate settings and will spread into a striking ground cover in optimum growing conditions.

It is interplanted with the wildly popular Stipa tenuissima (Mexican Feather Grass). Prized for its graceful, delicate and fine texture, Mexican Feather Grass forms a ravishing cascade which glow when caught by the sun in early morning and again in late afternoon.

Planted in drifts, these 2 plants form a brilliant, undulating river that is low maintenance and water wise. Both plants are deer resistant and drought tolerant.
