Great Plant Combinations

A beautiful winding gravel pathway flanked by foliage in shades of purple and chartreuse leads the eye to a stacked stone sculpture, before disappearing enticingly around a corner.

Minnesota still has a lot of great plant choices for zone 3-4, especially when combined with annuals.

Are these grasses & spirea viable in zone 6; in particular the black mondo grass?

An Alluring StrollPlantings and pathway blend easily in this picture-perfect scene. One is naturally drawn to the partially obscured stacked stone sculpture yet also wants to linger on this delightful meandering path.The color palette focuses on shades of purple provided by 'Beni Otake' Japanese maple (Acer palmatum 'Beni Otake') and 'Velvet Cloak' smokebush (Cotinus coggygria 'Velvet Cloak').The chartreuse foliage of 'Mellow Yellow' spirea (Spiraea thunbergii 'Ogon'), 'Golden Spirit' smokebush (Cotinus coggygria 'Golden Spirit') and Bowles' golden sedge (Carex elata 'Aurea') adds high contrast, taking center stage.Rhododendrons add rich magenta accents, while black mondo grass (Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens') adds deeper black notes.Key plants and colors are repeated on alternate sides of the pathway, luring you deeper and deeper into the dappled glade.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

1. An Alluring StrollPlantings and pathway blend easily in this picture-perfect scene. One is naturally drawn to the partially obscured stacked stone sculpture yet also wants to linger on this delightful meandering path.The color palette focuses on shades of purple provided by 'Beni Otake' Japanese maple (Acer palmatum 'Beni Otake') and 'Velvet Cloak' smokebush (Cotinus coggygria 'Velvet Cloak').The chartreuse foliage of 'Mellow Yellow' spirea (Spiraea thunbergii 'Ogon'), 'Golden Spirit' smokebush (Cotinus coggygria 'Golden Spirit') and Bowles' golden sedge (Carex elata 'Aurea') adds high contrast, taking center stage.Rhododendrons add rich magenta accents, while black mondo grass (Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens') adds deeper black notes.Key plants and colors are repeated on alternate sides of the pathway, luring you deeper and deeper into the dappled glade.
Combination Ideas1. Purples. Chartreuse and purple always make an exciting color combination, and there are many purple-leaved plants to choose from.In this garden Ogon spirea contrasts beautifully with the foliage of Velvet Cloak smoke bush (Cotinus coggygria 'Velvet Cloak'), Japanese maples and black mondo grass (Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens'), as well as the vibrant magenta rhododendron bloomsThe wonderful lime green of the spirea is repeated in Golden Spirit smoke bush (Cotinus coggygria 'Golden Spirit') and Bowles' golden sedge (Carex elata 'Aurea').With splashes of bright green planted in a zigzag fashion along the length of the pathway, the garden journey becomes more interesting and the space appears larger than it really is.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Explore Your Garden Personality: The Traveler
Repetition is of utmost importance when the traveler designs garden paths. Notice how the use of chartreuse and burgundy foliage alternating from side to side along this path creates rhythm and pulls the eye onward toward the destination. The stone sculpture is not the destination point of this garden but is a focal point from this view, creating a beautiful vignette.It is also important to note that the spacing between rhythmic elements can increase or decrease the speed at which the visitor moves through the space. Elements spaced closer together will slow down the visitor; spaced farther apart they encourage a longer stride and a brisker walk. With this knowledge you can slow your visitors down to notice certain details that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Lovely part shade path - would have to adapt plants for our zone though. In this photo: "The color palette focuses on shades of purple provided by 'Beni Otake' Japanese maple (Acer palmatum 'Beni Otake') and 'Velvet Cloak' smokebush (Cotinus coggygria 'Velvet Cloak'). The chartreuse foliage of 'Mellow Yellow' spirea (Spiraea thunbergii 'Ogon'), 'Golden Spirit' smokebush (Cotinus coggygria 'Golden Spirit') and Bowles' golden sedge (Carex elata 'Aurea') adds high contrast, taking center stage.

Alyson Ross Markley Repetition is of utmost importance when the traveler designs garden paths. Notice how the use of chartreuse and burgundy foliage alternating from side to side along this path creates rhythm and pulls the eye onward toward the destination. The stone sculpture is not the destination point of this garden but is a focal point from this view, creating a beautiful vignette. It is also important to note that the spacing between rhythmic elements can increase or decrease the speed at which the visitor moves through the space. Elements spaced closer together will slow down the visitor; spaced farther apart they encourage a longer stride and a brisker walk. With this knowledge you can slow your visitors down to notice certain details that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Notice how the garden shown here is filled with interesting shapes and textures, provided by both the plant palette and the stone. The gravel underfoot creates another layer of depth by adding to the sense of exploration.
