Color, walking stones with native grass, lushness
carefree ornamental grasses — intermingle with Gaura and kangaroo paw in what some may call "controlled chaos." I call it irresistible.

Unfortunately, I have no idea what zone this is in, and what zone you are in, but it looks like the grass could be carex divulsa (berkeley sedge) or you could use muhlenbergia (deer grass). These are natives in California. Can't see the yellow flower, but could use a coreopsis.
