Rhododendron ‘Wren’

ERICACEAE, THE Heath family

This planter was my favorite of the 14 I made for the show this year. It is called the ‘Strata planter’ because it is like geological layers, but also it is like cake. It is mostly made of jewel tone succulents, with some leafy rich colored things like Bunchberry, Cornus canadensis, in its winter color and Ajuga ‘Mahogany’. There are a few shrublets such as the tiny Rhododendron and 3 tiny Calluna ‘Firefly’. The ground covers in between are Raoulia, Platt’s Black Brass buttons and dwarf red creeping thyme.

There are a lot more images of the show garden and planters on flickr.

About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
