In garden design I believe that a lot of one thing can be a great thing. Monochromatic straight lines in the landscape appeal to me, rather than the hodge podge that can be created by planting too many plants of different species in one area…say, along the masonry garden wall, for example. I just love the ultra-simplicity of this shot…only a sublime vine is creeping stage back, otherwise, just an impressive planting with a lot of impact. No need for a border of Impatiens or Hosta…not that I have anything against Hosta…I just don’t want a pedestrian usage of Hosta and have it relegated to a “border”. Who needs a border??? Not this.
