Pink Echeveria ‘Afterglow’ dots the carpet of gray-blue Dymondia margaretae, repeating the hues of the larger plants. For an accent: a bronze-tinged ‘Sundowner’ phormium is striking beside an icy blue Agave attenuata ‘Nova’.
Outdoor Decorating/Gardening : Half the lawn is gone in this elegant, contemporary garden by Sitio Design. I love the diagonal pavers leading through Berkeley sedge and variegated dianella groundcovers.
Mexican tree ocotillos + agave: Here, fanlike Mexican tree ocotillos (Fouquieria macdougalii) serve as a backdrop for equally spaced agaves (Agave ‘Blue Glow’) and low chartreuse Sedum rupestre ‘Angelina’.
