Love the rhythm of these. Spanish Lavender is a good choice for not only its bloom color but because it also blooms for a longer time than most lavenders do and it has lovely silvery foliage that will play well with these other shrubs when the flowers are finished. Maybe for trhe front garden?
Fatsia japonica - Japanese aralia. Happy in full sun to shade. A tropical-looking, evergreen shrub with gorgeously glossy, deep green palmate leaves. In autumn, creamy white flowers are produced in large panicles, which are often followed by round, black fruit. It makes a superb feature in an exotic-style garden, where the large leaves team well with bamboos and grasses.
