Euphorbia characias and Cytisus praecox 'Albus' lean over the dry stone edging. Rosa x odorata 'Mutabilis', Papaver 'Golden Glory' and dark Foeniculum 'Giant Bronze' thrust up through a base of silvery foliage from Artemesia 'Powis Castle', Lychnis var., Verbascum Jackie and Sedum 'Stewed Rhubarb Mountain'.
