Excellent use of colors, texture and design. One question the homeowner should ask would be 'when'' do I want the main flower show? And are the plants chosen invasive or not. Have seen euphoria's over used and even weedy veronica's. Pretty weeds!.

I agree, but Google plus is not too far off the mark either. I posted some pictures of two gardeners I know. I used to maintain and supply plants to their gardens. One tried to connect using IE explorer and failed. All she could get was the about me page and nothing else. I will probably reduce my time here and put things on my own site instead. It is available to ALL, not just Google circle members.
My flower pictures will now to to something like this. http://sequimplants.com/monthly-flowers-pacific-northwest

I've been working on my slope for quite awhile so I know that you can have a low maintenance planting design on a sloped area of land with lots of color and interest. In addition, colors and looks can change throughout the seasons as shown in the link below. Top 3 pics are this same slope! http://www.landscape-design-advice.com/landscaping-steep-slopes.html Some of the plants shown are Geranium 'Johnson's Blue', Sedum 'Autumn Joy', and Catmint 'Walkers Low'.

I totally agree with the author. There are many underused landscape plants and Native Ninebark is one of them. I had no idea there were so many cultivars. Callicarpa mentioned would be a nice companion choice. Bravo!

crapmyrtel  becoming more prevalent in garden circles.
Crape myrtle however, is a useful landscape and garden planting.
Best of luck this 2015 season!
