^ I have some hostas in the back of the beds cause it is dry and they filled in good. You might see the Hydrangea bushes.. on either side of the walkway. In there also is Blackeyed Susans, Echinachea, lavender, Russian Sage and Salvia it all does well in our area.
Yes I have tons of ornamental grasses the white verigated kind.. and one the gets as high as my house, blood grass and 2 other kinds, I love it and got a little carried away.. but it's easy and makes a statement.. I think.
