Landscaping guided by a series of arbitrary "rules" such as "always plant shrubs in groups of three or five" and "never plant annuals in public places" does not take into account the needs of individual families and sites. Such landscaping rarely gives good design. Good design should not be limited by such stipulated rules. Our goal in landscape design does not just create good visual relationships.
Groundcovers and lawns act as unifying elements in a landscape. A unified landscape offers a pleasant view from every angle. A landscape with too many ideas in a small space lacks unity. Too many varieties of plants, accent plants, lawn accessories with shapes, textures or contrasting colors violate the unit principle by distracting the viewer from a theme visual coherence that unites the individual elements of the landscape. Perspective is our visual perception of three-dimensional space. Some techniques may look like a small space, while others may make a larger space appear.
Where to Grow: Most grow best in the low, coastal and tropical areas of the South (zones 8-10). Some, like Crinum x powellii 'Alba' and 'Ellen Bosanquet,' are sturdy further north. Where to buy: Order at Jenks Farmer or Plant Delights Nursery. To prevent your flowers from being engulfed by deer - one of the most distressing woes of any garden - choose flowers that people find glorious and deer find disgusting. It's not a chore as hard as you could imagine. We recommend opting for deer-hungry perennials such as butterfly weeds, globe thistle, 'Royal Red' butterfly bush or even blueberry.
