Color. This abundant border is defined by colorful plants, from the Japanese blood grass in the foreground to the rhubarb-red Sedum 'Autumn Joy' in the back of the border. This palette enlivens nearby plants and demands attention. When used with confidence, color can create important focal points in the landscape. It can signal where to enter and how to proceed; it also draws the eye and invites exploration. Successful use of color is often restrained, limited to a narrow but powerful palette, which is exactly what you see in this design.
