A Lovely Mediterranean Garden

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Summer Borders


A wonderful plant palette mixing colors and texture and giving a Mediterranean flavor to this fragrant and low maintenance garden! Curving up against the blue stone path and softening the edges, the silver-gray clumps of Lamb's Ears (Stachys byzantina) provide a beautiful contrast to the glorious mounds of the Green Santolina's creamy yellow flowers (Santolina pinnata subsp. neapolitana) and the purple spikes of the English Lavender (Lavandula). The addition of a potted dwarf citrus tree is a great idea! Imagine growing lemons on your patio and enjoying the sight and fragrance of indoor winter blooms!

A low maintenance and water wise garden created by Shades of Green Landscape Architecture.
