This bed has been redesigned by me as part of a local school's golden jubilee celebrations. The planting is structural and low maintenance. The planted area is dry, sunny and south east facing with relatively poor soil. The planting palette suits the conditions whilst also reflecting the school's colour of maroon particularly in the foliage.
Key plants are the Italian Cypress, Olive, Hebe 'Pink Elephant', Pittosporum 'Golf ball', Stipa tenuissima, Stipa Gigantica, Acanthus mollis and Anthriscus Sylvestris 'Ravenswing'.
