A Colorful and Low Maintenance Mediterranean Path

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


This stunning coastal garden path combines a mix of ornamental grasses and herbaceous perennials, mostly drought tolerant, and providing weeks of colors.

It is filled with plants that handle nicely the coastal weather with its noticeable breezes and salt spray. Among the plants selected are the brilliantly colored Helianthemum 'Henfield Brilliant' (Rock Rose), Gaura lindheimeri 'Siskiyou Pink' (Beeblossom), Anigozanthos (Kangaroo Paw), and highly ornamental grasses including Carex testacea (New Zealand Hair Sedge), Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum' (Purple Fountain Grass) and Stipa tenuissima (Mexican Feather Grass).

Created by Gardens by Gabriel, this low maintenance seaside garden is a real delight. Enjoy!
