Gorgeous, like the idea and look of the same-themed hues. Allows for continuing variety, but within the framework of a defined perspective and palette of shades.

My garden is almost entirely shades of purple. Being new to the area, I used a landscape gardener to start me off and after the 1st growing season, when I asked why there was so much purple, he replied "Is there? I wouldn't know because I'm color blind." Oh well!!!

Olga, I live in zone 4 and I have Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola' growing well in my garden. It even survived last winter when temps reached a low of -65F. It was buried in snow so that helped protect it from the cold.
