Another wonderful composition is the eye catching Salvia ‘Rasberry Delight’ combined with the blue flowering Aster × frikartii ‘Monch’ and yellow flowering Hartweg’s sundrops (Calylophus hartwegii ssp. fendleri) – a cheerful combination of color.

Not to be missed is the new planting just before you arrive to Kearny’s Gap Bridge of the native Rocky Mountain penstemon (Penstemon strictus) with its dark green glossy leaves and deep purple flowers, truly exquisite!

For a country cottage garden, the climbing fragrant ‘New Dawn’ rose is looking lovely. Perhaps combined with the orange flowered ‘Pat Austin’ rose and the prolific ROZANNE geranium would be a delightful combo.
