Stipa gigantea lends movement and a transparent vertical lift to this garden scene with its vertical blooms atop an evergreen clump of grassy foliage. The long-blooming and easy-care Paprika shrub rose adds its warmly colored floral tones which look especially nice backed by the finely textured blue foliage of blue arrow juniper and with the soft and touchable, furry gray foliage of the lamb's ears at its feet. This planting combination which is tough, adaptable, and drought tolerant delivers foliage and bloom all season long with minimal care.
