Vashon Island, WA: Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa macra 'All Gold') lights up a shadel garden featuring pieris, hellebores and hostas in Froggsong Garden in summer. We love this Hakonechloa for lighting up dry shade.
Mix perennials into your landscape successfully by repeating plants, changing textures and varying heights. So many perennials are drought tolerant which helps with maintenance in the garden. Find out more about my favorite perennials and all about them,
