MEDIUM GARDEN
Grange, Edinburgh

An exotic garden with wow factor was called for here, with the wow provided by plants as the clients wanted to keep the existing hard landscaping.

A combination of the architectural Chusen palm Trachycarpus fortunei , the spiky native Australian Cordyline australis and the New Zealand Flax Phormium tenax were used to create a sense of drama. Under planting included the Black-eyed Susan Coneflower Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm', Kniphofia Red hot pokers and the deep wine-red flowers of Penstemon 'Garnet'.
