Love the contrast in forms between the hydrangea flowers (Annabelle ?) and the blue Veronica spires.

Love this hydrangea Annabelle, beautiful big white mop heads, tough as nails plant. It blooms in full shade. Mix in a little blue or lavender and you have a peaceful, quiet garden to relax in.

From Annie: This small, evergreen grass from South Africa makes the softest, prettiest blooms of any grass we grow!
