We've lived in Colorado long enough to know it's going to take a few seasons for my vision to take shape, but as these plants start to mature it's going to be beautiful. I chose several ornamental grasses, along with some flowering plants and ground covers: purple salvia, sage, Red Baron grass, Karl Foerster grass, yellow day lilies, red yarrow, purple and pink creeping phlox, blue fescue grass and pink ice plants.
It's going to be fun to look back on these pictures in a few years time to see how these little baby plants have grown. I specifically chose what I did for the variety in size, shape, height and color. As for the tower.....we positioned it so it's best vantage point is when sitting on the back patio....and I intend to spend plenty of time appreciating it in the years to come!
