Ulva posting in A modernist garden community
I think I'm finished with the list of plants now. It's been a bit odd since I haven't been able to discuss every aspect of these plants since alli_akbar has been away but I still think I had to make the decision.

Remembering the advice from a previous teacher I have really tried to keep the number of species down. There are so many wonderful plants out there but what I need are plants which really enhances and reflects my ideas. The key features in this garden are:


  • serenity
  • contrast, not so much in colours as in textures
  • practicality
  • year around experience


Without further ado I give you the selected plants:
