What plants did you use to achieve such a masterpiece? - I believe I recognize some gaura, stipa tenuissima, pennisetum and carex (what varieties?). But I fail identifying the red, purple or orange flowers. Kind regards,

Looks great! What kind of ground cover is that between the stepping stones? Nice work Gabriel!

So beautiful. Would these plants work in Pennsylvania ? We just bought a house with a big yard and I have no clue where to start but I have a bed that is bare and ready!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Coastal Garden Style
However, if spare isn't really your style, you still have options. This coastal planting bed is filled with color, both from the perennials and the grasses. It's also filled with plants. The overall look is a blend of cottage and traditional, a nice mix for a home garden and certainly up to handling coastal weather.
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.
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Meet a Lawn Alternative That Works Wonders
They can be used to break up a cacophony of flowering plants in a border or path either in spring or fall, or on into winter, when they keep their ornamental interest.

hanks for the compliments! In the foreground orange flowers are Mimulus, and Heliathemum (sunroses). The sweeping hair-like grass is Carex testacea. The red in the backround are Anigozanthus (kangaroo paw) and the purple pom-poms are verbena lilacina a native of the channel island. It was a fun tapestry to weave, and this was definitely a peak moment :)
