Shades of Green… and blue, and gray…

blue/grey/green

shades of green

I love this combination of plants! The shapes, textures and colors all compliment each other so beautifully. The shiny blue-green glaze of the pot in the foreground and the barely visible natural stone fountain in the background make this a Sunset Magazine/Garden Design-worthy image, if I do say so myself! This little vignette is part of a garden I designed and planted about a year ago that had an Asian-inspired theme. Now that I’m done gloating, if anyone’s still with me, here’s a list of the plants:

– Echeveria imbricata (Hens & Chicks)

– Juniperus procumbens ‘Nana’ (Dwarf Japanese Juniper)

– Bamboo (can’t remember which, but definitely ‘clumping’ type!)

– Chondropetalum tectorum (Cape Rush)

BTW, the fountain is from Fabbri Home & Garden in Half Moon Bay and the pot is from AW Pottery in Berkeley. Isn’t it great when a plan comes together??

      Thank you so much! I’ve been having fun mixing succulents in with “other” plants… I checked out your blog and it appears you guys are quite fond of succulents too!
