Gawd, you really hit the hotspots up here! Ciscoe probably has more of the McDonald's red-and-yellow color combo going on than you like, I see. I adore the golden yellow lillies in front of that dark, dark smoke bush. Do I see a yucca in there? Eeek, hazardous... I don't care for yucca after struggling with my Mother-in-law's overgrowth of those for years. But he's got wonderful low-care, long-blooming combos goin' on there and I bet something is always in bloom. Ciscoe is adored up here in the NW, he's a total gardening rock star.
I've been wanting to see his yard. My sister has a friend that lives nearby and she thought it was totally overgrown, but obviously she has a different gardening style. I like how it looks, full of lots of colorful plants.
Chuck -- I blogged your trip too!http://midbeaconhill.blogspot.com/2009/07/mari-and-andrews-west-seattle-garden-in.html
Awesome post, Chuck! I had seen some other photos of Cisco's yard and liked it - yours are way better! Perhaps bloom time had a little to do with it? But, no reviews from you??? I miss your succinct commentary. Outstanding combos - agree on the yellow lillies and smoke bush. AND Eryngiums!?!?! Love 'em! Killed 'em, but love 'em. ;-) Ditto on Melianthis. More water, they all scream here. I think in the 4th photo next to S. Limemound is that Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy' someone suggested for your trouble spot. Sweet little combo there, too! sigh... such brilliance..
