Capel Manor, Hakonechloa, Ophiopogon, perfect partners, pittosporum, plant design, planting combinations
Ophiopogon planiscapus ‘Nigrescens’, Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’ and Pittosporum tenuifolium ‘Silver Magic’, spotted at Wisley on a frosty day.
(By way of explanation: We’ve been set an assignment for the Plant Design course I’m doing at Capel Manor to compile lots of plant combinations that we particularly like, so since it’s going to take me all year to do, I thought I’d share them as I go along.)
Lucy, Thanks for sharing this it has given me an idea, for a project I am working on. Gary
oooh that’s really nice
I’ve got 50 of them to do for my course too. Each plant + 3 companions…
