Interpreting Trends

Rachel Zoe sums up best what to do about seasonal trends. “When you look like you stepped out of a catalog, that's never good. People shouldn't succumb to trend, they should interpret trend.” That’s the beauty of plants; there is so much to interpret! And no worries about the Latin names; just find your perfect colors. What works for you in the small corner pockets of your home is all based on your interpretation. Here’s a pair that we have combined: Amethyst Sea Holly (Eryngium amethystinum), a phenomenal drought-tolerant perennial with this dynamite annual, Red-leafed Dracaena (Cordyline baurei Red Leaved Dracaena). This packs punch and texture all in one.

As we head into planting season, do you dare to bend beyond the classic colors and textures? If so, don’t expect for everything to look catalog beautiful and better yet, reach for your own garden interpretation. Most of all; enjoy the earth! Happy Easter or Passover everyone.
