A very pretty combination of surprisingly tough plants, this ensemble provides year-round interest from the conifers and evergreen components. In spring and summer, dark pink and purple flowers steal the show, with Pittosporum blossoms lending powerful fragrance. As summer progresses, the Miscanthus flowers rise, exploding into full flower in autumn and lasting through the winter as the seedheads turn gauzy and mature against blue-tinted conifers.
