Texture Texture Everywhere
Every gardener wishes for a beautiful garden from early spring into autumn. Using a succession of plants that bloom at various times throughout the season is the best way to ensure continued interest. Another component is texture. When you plan a garden it is so important to account for the time the plant is not in bloom. Using a variety of textures and leaf colors keeps the plant interesting even when it is not in flower.
A mix of textures like these really give another dimension to the garden. Rosette, palm-like, feathery, lobed, bumpy, sword-like, evergreen and spikey are just a few types of foliage you can find. In addition to trees, shrubs and grasses you will have a well rounded garden all year!
