Although some bed head gardens combine flowers and grasses, don't worry too much about color, Maffei advises. He pairs narrow-leaved plants with broad-leaved ones and vase-shaped plants with those that grow in mounds. "Then toss in a few [plants] that have long, wiry stems that will spray out around them. Don't mass lots of the same plant in one place, mix them up a little."

Hyssop, sedum, purple coneflower and perennial grasses

Parking Strip - Rhone Street Gardens l the small city garden of Scott Weber - Agastache, Sedum Matrona, Calamagrostis Karl Foerster, Echinacea, Verbena bonariensis

Mexican Feather grass, Verbena bonariensius and Japanese blood grass, zone 6. Verbena This outstanding annual or perennial deserves its popularity. It makes an architectural statement with slender, willowy stems that stand up to 6 feet tall and do not need staking. It then branches out widely near the top where rich lilac-purple flower clusters stand alone, as if they are floating. This Verbena makes a great see-through plant

Plant combination: Mexican feather grass, verbena bonariensius and Japanese blood grass, zone
