masses meandering around "patio?" notice light color of stone.
Create masses of multiple species. You can also try massing multiple species throughout your yard. The contrasts among them can reveal features in each that may have gone on unnoticed had only one plant type been used. The varieties play off each other's characteristics in unexpected ways.

This is a planting around large boulders. Plants include junipers, Japanese blood grass, cleome, butterfly grass, sedums, pennisetum.

What plants are used? What is the name of those used and what climate do they grow in?
I, too, would like to zones/climate in which these plants can be grown. Thank you.
Where can I get some of the red and green plants? What are they're names?

Contemporary Hedging PlantsSucculents. We see in this beautiful contemporary design how hedging has become an integral component of the design, adding mass as well as color and texture. I know that many people would not consider the glaucous agave planting as a hedge, but it does come within the definition
