What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Snake Flower
Plant Hallmark in a mass, in a rock garden, or even in a living wall. For such a delicate-looking flower, this perennial is pretty tough and can survive in most applications. Imagine a sea of orange cascading down your difficult backyard slope or even a minor hint of tangerine peaking up from inside a planter in your kitchen.
Cassy Aoyagi, FormLA Landscaping added this to Small Garden Strategy: Built-In Seating
Retain seating space. Built-in seating is often built into another feature. Topping off this short retaining wall with seating is a brilliant idea. Can you imagine sitting here with a book, smelling all the fresh blooms? Or seating your family here for photos amidst the foliage? Lovely!
Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Lavender Cotton
How to use it. Lavender cotton is a landscape workhorse, bringing color, texture and an easy space filler to the garden. Notice how it fills out the bank alongside orange snake flower shrubs (Bulbine frutescens 'Hallmark') in this design by Eileen Kelly.Popular in native Mediterranean gardens, lavender cotton's dusty foliage and vibrant flowers complement light-toned Spanish architecture. Trailing edges cascade effortlessly over terra-cotta paths and courtyard edges.In addition, lavender cotton has seen heavy use in formal Tudor knot gardens. Depending on your garden style, lavender cotton can adapt to nearly anything — simply prune or let it grow wild.

Hi, thanks for the compliment! I used Lavendula x intermedia 'Provence' and yes that is Santolini chamaecyparissus. The plant with the green foliage and orange flowers is Bulbine frutescens 'Hallmark'. I was very happy with this combination. And peeking out at the bottom is Penstemon heterophyllus... it has stunning blue/purple flowers. Thanks again for your comments!
