After a long day of being onsite I arrived home just now to a sweet surprise. Artichoke Green Globe from Peaceful Valley Nurseries. I won them a couple weeks ago in a giveaway on Genevieve’s North Coast Gardening Blog. I have already decided what I am going to pair them with (and because my daughter already picked out a packet of seeds I don’t even need to go to the store). It’s Gomphrena.
There are lots of rationale’s for pairing plants. In this case, I hope a matching form will be interesting. I think the large globe shape of the artichoke and the small globe shape of the Gomphrena, one green with silvery foliage and one bright raspberry red on green foliage, will be quite a sight. What are some of you rationales for pairing plants?
