Arctostaphylos 'Austin Griffith' is the strong and steady anchor for this handsome and durable plant combination. Yucca and a dwarf deodar cedar complement the composition—the yucca's variegated swords and the dwarf conifer's with its low and wide shape. A tapestry of foliage—carex, sedum, and sempervivum—rounds out the vignette on the ground plane. This combo is low water, low maintenance, and it looks good year-round!
