Autumn gardening: Denim 'n Lace

Dig It! // Gardening & Green Spaces // Sept. 29, 2016

Autumn is bowling along apace, with warm days and buzzing bees and lots of colour in the parks and gardens.

Autumn gardening: Denim 'n Lace

If your pots and containers are looking a bit tired, you can pep them up a bit with some autumn colour. Sedums and grasses are both low-maintenance and provide months of interest.

If you would like something out of the usual gold and red tones of the autumn, then perhaps a Perovskia, or Russian Sage, might do the trick.

The new Perovskia on the block is super-compact but packed with flowers, and it's called "Denim and Lace." Gray Gruber, of Cultivaris, the plant development company, tells us more.
