I got the variegated one!photo copyHere we have the mexican feather grass in the far back (love how golden it is and how it moves in the wind) and then the bright green gaura that will soon have white blossoms all along the stem, and last up close and personal we have the blue dune sedge (love the little spikes for texture). photo

Not too shabby eh? Can’t wait to add more mulch and watch these beauties grow in more!

Thanks for watchin’ me Zest up the yard!!
