pastel color overflow
5. Grey-Green and Bronze in the Bay AreaFor this Northern California property bordering an open space, a garden color palette of gray-greens, tawny golds and pastels harmoniously blends with the subtle tones of the natural landscape. There are no garish hybrids in this design by Garden Nest Residential Landscape. Instead, a mix of long-flowering perennials such as XX and XX and grasses pick up the golden tones beyond the fence line.
The plants, including ‘Karl Foerster’ feather reed grass, won’t spread — essential when planting near open space — and are drought tolerant (need to confirm once designer confirms plants).Plant list:‘Karl Foerster’ feather reed grass (Calamagrostis x acutiflora ‘Karl Foerster’, zones 4 to 9)[need to confirm]XX magenta penstemon?XX pink salvia?XX Blue-flowering bush?- XX Bronze carex or New Zealand sedge?Heavenly bamboo (Nandina domestica)Water requirement: Moderate to low, once establishedLight requirement: Full sun[Annie, I’ve emailed designer on plant id and to confirm non-invasive choices. Will let you know when I hear back].
