Revisiting the Garden at Federal Twist - The Obsessive Neurotic Gardener
Romance in the Garden, French-Country Style
The marriage of colorful cottage-style gardens with formal design, clipped hedges and stone hardscapes inspired the French impressionists. This romantic design style can look just as beautiful in yards.
While Pennisetum 'Vertigo' doesn't change colour during Autumn, it's constant brooding colouring is a fabulous foil for its bedmates. Seen here with Panicum 'Rostralbusch', I love how the more solid 'Vertigo' contrasts with the ephemeral blooms and golden hue of the Panicum.
