Iris & foxglove

[Wonderful combination of plants. I think I'm looking at foxglove, tall bearded iris, and purple violas. Looks like maybe lamb's ear in the bottom left corner--excellent color foil.] What a great looking garden

border in Thomas Rainer's garden, northern Virginia, May: Salvia, Nepeta, Nasella, ornamental Alliums. Kousa dogwood?   Look at cool-season native grasses to see if any share the frosty chartreuse effect of the Nassella here.

Design by Thomas Rainer: Nasella tenuissima and Salvia 'Caradonna' - Love the billowing catmint, grasses, salvia, allium, and poppies under the dogwood! Great lawn alternative for a frontyard
