Back in November I posted about my first installation with Gardens by Gabriel. This beach house courtyard garden in Cayucos. The design featured mostly plants from Annie’s Annuals.
This morning Gabe and I stopped by to check things out. It is looking pretty good.
The first bed has a purple, pink, and blue theme going on.
The second bed adds some chartreuse to the mix with Nicotiana ‘Lime Green’.
And the third bed is orange at the moment. Very, very orange.
Eschscholzia ‘Apricot Chiffon’ is doing really well.
As I’ve mentioned before California poppies are seed grown so there is always going to be some variation. The one below is kind of neat even if it is more yellow than orange.
We moved the Musschia wollastonii to a new location in January but it looks like it didn’t miss a beat.
I’m not even sure these pictures can convey how blue Anagallis monellii is. It is very, very, intense, deep purply-blue.
I like this violent combination of Anagallis and Ursinia anthemoides ‘Solar Fire’
Nicotiana mutabilis is just getting started. I wanted something that would be tall but not overwhelming for the space. It is sort of a see-through plant so I thought it would work well.
Nicotiana ‘Lime Green’ and Geranium ‘Bill Wallis’ have been blooming since November.
I’m very impressed with how big these November planted Trachelium ‘Hamer Pandora’ are. Mine were only planted in February and are quite boinky and little in comparison. Nice combination with Euphorbia ‘Blue Haze’.
Altogether I am very happy with the way the garden turned out.
