Aren't these graceful violet-blue flowers, shimmering in the summer sunlight, attractive when combined with the undulating creamy tan grass fountains? On display in summer, this low maintenance ensemble, on display at Chanticleer Garden, has been realized with Lavandin (Lavandula x intermedia) and the stunning Mexican Feather Grass (Nassella tenuissima or Stipa tenuissima). They both present quite an impressive show in the garden!
