A joyous celebration of plants — with their unique traits, forms, habits and blooms — adds up to a garden with a charismatic and engaging attitude. Colors may clash for surprisingly successful pairings, like orange and pink or gold and purple. This garden challenges conventions. It is a single composition created by the pairing of exotic and native plants. Carex, Stipa and Pennisetum — carefree ornamental grasses — intermingle with Gaura and kangaroo paw in what some may call "controlled chaos." I call it irresistible.
