I'd love to grow a mixed border like this (and since they're mainly low-growing plants, Martha would like it, too!).

Transforming a grim strip into a lush border took about 2 years in Colorado (the process goes faster in milder areas). Prominent flowers are blue flax, orange poppies, and red Penstemon eatonii.

Shades of purple! Trachelium caeruleum, the violet-blue cloud spilling over the rocks in the foreground of this photo, is a prime example. It is backed by a complementary drift of Mexican bush sage (Salvia leucantha). To the left is a lavender-gray pillow

Great color combo for full sun:  Coreopsis (yellow)  Salvia nemorosa (deep purple)  Centranthus (pink)  Nepeta (lavender)  Artemesia? (grey)
