Use of Color and Texture

One winter we had "The Siberian Express" blow through our nursery. When all was said and done, we lost about 50,000 potted plants. We dumped them all (amidst tears) over a slope below the house, and Mother Nature created a very nice composted base for the Heather Garden, which was planted five years later. The heathers and heaths flow downwards in large drifts of color and texture, contrasting with the many intermingled dwarf conifers.
