You can't swing a dead cat in the Herb Garden without hitting something pretty

Lilium with Larkspur, Rosa rugosa hips, cool Sunflower, Horned-Poppy foliage...and flower. Actually while I love the silvery foliage and appreciate the yellow flower, it's the long hooked fruit that's the best thing about Glaucium. The Theme Gardens are good now too.
The Theme Gardens are aligned around the inside perimeter of a circular space. The circle is enclosed by Buxus which is in turn enclosed by large 'Natchez' Crape Myrtles. The effect of the design is that the theme beds tend, much of the day, to be lit by direct sun with dark shade as a background, a great light for displaying texture or color.
