Hi beetelman,
Sorry for the long delay in answering the question...I've been crazy busy! Thank you for your compliment on my work. The tall blue spiky flowers are Salvia 'Black and Blue'. It's an annual salvia that grows quickly.

I think the best way to get the best of both worlds (instant impact and room for plants) is plant your shrubs, perennials, and trees with the proper space allowed for the eventual height and then fill in around with annuals. That way you can get that mature look you want right away and each year you can put less and less "filler" into the garden. I have a dark coloured phormium and Dahpne 'Eternal Fragrance' on either side of it for my year round structure. A lot of the plants in the front of the raised bed are annuals. I hope this helps!

Thanks for your reply. Yes, very helpful. It's amazing that an annual can grow so large in one season. Great design. Thanks again

Hi uptipp,

The furniture was purchased from a store in Vancouver called Furniture Direct about three years ago. If they still carry the product you might be able to get them to ship the cushions. Here's a link to their website.

I hope this helps!

While I don't really care for the furniture, Glenna Partridge has a lovely garden sense. I'd love a walking-talking tour of her space. Elegant, careful, gentle, comforting, adult environment for folks who's lives are not child obsessed.
