Downtown Mediterranean Garden

Along this busy Novato sidewalk colorful groundcover plants spread from under the skirts of a large California native Deer Grass and a Phlomis. Occasional trimming is all the maintenance these water saving plants need.

Hi Jill - Glad you like the plant combination in this photo! the plants are Phlomis lanata (yellow flower), (white & yellow daisylike flower) Gazania White Sumburst, and (blue-violet flower) Convolulus mauritanius. (Botanical names are more accurate to use. There is also a Phlomis fruticosa on the left, behind the Muhlenbergia.
