Plant blowsy beau­ties for BOR­DER CHIC

Mop­head hy­drangeas and dusky pink se­dums make an el­e­gant au­tumn com­bi­na­tion. Cre­ate the look in three easy steps

Garden Answers (UK) - - Easy Gardening -

For any­one who’s had their fill of fiery colours in au­tumn, there is an­other way. You can shift the plant­ing pal­ette into cooler, lighter realms with clouds of creamy white hy­drangeas and a rib­bon of pur­ple-pink se­dum. Hy­drangea ar­borescens ‘Annabelle’ is one of those plants that pulls ev­ery­one un­der its spell. Its enor­mous globes of white bracts are im­pos­si­ble to pass with­out a friendly pat and as day­light hours fall they fade to a de­li­cious lime green. Thread deep pink up­right hy­lotele­phium (se­dum) ‘Ma­trona’ around its skirts and they look like clouds above a wine-bruised sky.
