Here is the recipe for a successful marriage: mounds of tiny yellow flowers, subtly echoed by the spectacular golden blooms of Palo Verde trees, and graceful violet-blue flowers, shimmering in the summer sunlight, complemented by undulating creamy tan grass fountains.

Designed for long-lasting color and interest by WA Design, this naturalistic, low maintenance combination includes Santolina or Lavender Cotton (Santolina chamaecyparissus), English Lavander (Lavandula Angustifolia), and the stunning Mexican Feather Grass (Nassella tenuissima or Stipa tenuissima). A charming casual mix of colors and textures that can be easily replicated in many full sun gardens.
