Today’s Plant Palette

I thought you might be interested in the plant palette that I helped a client create for her property today.  I really like how it all turned out.  The plants are all set out and will be going into the ground very soon.

    Excellent color and textural choices! Nice work. Hope you post after pics, and maybe again when the plants mature. Please pass on any info on the face pot, what a great accent piece.
    I use Cimicifuga ‘Pink Spike’ a lot, a real client pleaser.

    I love the hellebore and clematis that you selected! And I really like the idea of a plant palette – this is how I think about arranging flowers. I always start with a floral palette.

    Rochelle, those are some beautiful combinations. I especially like the Carex and Hellebore — never would have thought to match those two.
