climbing white hydrangea

pretty but i can never get hydrangeas to gorw.besides they probably take too much water :( Climbing hydrangea, flowers, white, gardening, landscaping

.lovely mix of cool greens & blue greens, like little tuffs.

Cool colours and beautiful textures with small leafed Westringia and Santolina(?) by Secret Gardens of Sydney. Not only do fine-leaved plants withstand heavy coastal winds, but they look great when mass planted adjacent to other fine-leaved plants.

I like the different textures and tones of green, and the layering. Tone on Tone: Our white garden featured in Southern Living, photo by Helen Norman

I'm making a new raised bed with small trees, I like the bushes planted around them

olive trees in courtyard. Evergreen, soft grey tones, hardy and easily shaped. My husband really wants one of these in our garden so he can have an "on-tap" supply of olives and a reminder of my Italian roots.

beautiful but apparently wisteria will destroy/invade. so keep to tree form or place on iron structures

Espalier trees can be used like a sculpture in the landscape.  They can also be planted in pots to create green within hardscape areas low on space.
