need for 2015 Dianthus 'Firewitch'. Blue-gray grass-like foliage. Highly fragrant hot pink blooms in June. Best planted in a grouping of 5 or more as it's a small plant. Foliage provides interest beyond blooming. Good front-of-the border plant.
Break the Rules Don't take garden design too seriously. Have fun and feel free to break the rules. Your tallest plants don't always have to go in the back of the border. Plant some in the front to mix things up a bit.
Big foliage is wonderful for scale: Plants, arranged low to tall add drama. Plants include dark purple Heuchera ‘Velvet Night’, red and green Rodgersia podophylla ‘Rotlaub’, and a feathery Japanese maple.
