Quite colorful, this Mediterranean garden provides visual impact in the front yard of this California home. Low ground level plantings, under the ravishing canopies of Washingtonia filifera (California Falm Palm) and x Chitalpa tashkentensis (Chitalpa), include a remarkable selection of architectural agaves and aloes. Tall, spiky, dark burgundy Cordyline australis (Cabbage Tree) and low Cycas revoluta (Sago Palm) serve as focal points. The charming Punica granatum (Pomegranate) is an unexpected element that works well. Variety in foliage color and form is used to excellent effect.

Looking good all year-round, all these plants are drought tolerant.
