Color in the Landscape
When we design new landscapes, we like to double plant the evergreen foundational shrubs with colorful native perennials. Not only does this emulate natural ecological succession, but it provides quick fill and brilliant color while the evergreens are getting established. Typically, the perennial color spots just move around to fill up holes by seeding themselves in. Shown in this photo, bright purple penstemons and yellow monkey flowers really put on a show, while the toyons and ceanothus will fill in later as the garden matures. This landscape is located near Valley Center, north of Escondido.
Shown in these photos, bright purple penstemons, lavender seaside daisy, orange poppies and yellow monkey flowers really put on a show, while the evergreens like toyon, manzanita and ceanothus will fill in later as the gardens mature. These landscapes are located all over North San Diego county.
