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?
Geranium macrorrhizum 'Spessart', 45 cm. A medium growing form with white flowers with pink calyx. Very tolerant of dry soils and conditions. One of the most and best evergreen of the forms. Offers Autumn brightness as the leaves colour. Makes a fantastic dense ground cover even in dry shade.
Euphorbia amygdaloides var. robbiae - Perennials
Euphorbia amygdaloides var. robbiae Euphorbias are great structural plants which generally look well all year round, once established they require little maintenance. This species is a good ground cover from sun to shade or under trees. and is a good ground cover in difficult spots like root pressure or dry shade
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.
