    I love the grass. Mine has never flowered, maybe not enough sun. Great combination of plants.

  2. Love this plant combination, and the photo!

  3. I practically jumped out of my chair at these stunning colors! This is why fall is my favorite season. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Can I ask where are you located? Would the flowering plant at the top work in a Zone 5, northern Illinois garden?

      Hi Karyn,
      I’m in the suburban Seattle area, zone 7. The flowers at the top are Nemesia. They are a long blooming summer annual and I think fairly hardy across the country, but I would look them up for your zone just to be sure.

  5. Love that Leucothe! I’ve tried them in my own garden, to no avail. sniff, sniff….

    Indeed it is a great color combo!

  7. […] Salwitz: I found a great fall combo on Christina’s blog Personal Garden Coach–what I like about this is that it focuses on foliage rather than flowers, and can be at home […]
