What plants did you use to achieve such a masterpiece?

I believe I recognize some gaura, stipa tenuissima, pennisetum and carex (what varieties?).
But I fail identifying the red, purple or orange flowers.
Kind regards,

Thanks for the compliments! In the foreground orange flowers are Mimulus, and Heliathemum (sunroses). The sweeping hair-like grass is Carex testacea. The red in the backround are Anigozanthus (kangaroo paw) and the purple pom-poms are verbena lilacina a native of the channel island. It was a fun tapestry to weave, and this was definitely a peak moment :)

Awesome Gabriel! Was I correct guessing that the pink flowers were Gaura ? Is it Pennisetum on the left of the purple pompoms ? So beautiful!

Nice work, I forgot to mention it, you got those right as well! Pennisetum setaceum is a favorite of mine.

I love these gardens. They've given me such inspiration. We just installed our front landscape. Still have a bit to do. On the gulf coast of FL, they have limited resources for 'different' plants. We have gotten many positive remarks so far on what we're doing. Very xeric. Will post when done. Thanks again.

Your design artistry is inspiring! Thanks for sharing such beautiful images. What is the first plant front left - large, toothed foliage?

Yes Jean they would do well in your area. This garden is 1/4 mile from the pacific, so strong coastal influence on the climate. These plants enjoy well drained soil, so generously ammend and build up if you have clay! If your on sand your golden :)

Looks great! What kind of ground cover is that between the stepping stones? Nice work Gabriel!

So beautiful. Would these plants work in Pennsylvania ? We just bought a house with a big yard and I have no clue where to start but I have a bed that is bare and ready!
