i must say, the house and the containers did most of the work in helping us create the dramatic tuscan effect we were going for. Red rose topiaries at the top filled with deep dahlias, red petunias, dusty miller, yellow lantana, ivy, yellow tiny tunias and large gray leaf salvia (as seen below) did the rest of the work. I cant wait to see it all grown in later this season. I loved finding the salvia and it was my favorite texture this year.
I love all things green. Succulent leaves, interesting textures, soft moss. I am a professional floral designer who has created a way to work artistically and still be home with my little girls. Fresh from the garden state, flores del sol.
