If you are out to have some serious fun in your garden, you should consider going Mediterranean, albeit in a small way. All you need is some sunny space, the basic concepts and lots of creativity.
Create a Mediterranean garden wherever you live with bright colors and hot hues from flowers like coreopsis, blanket flower, sedum, and sunflower.
Set these off with contrasting plants in shades of blue along with silvery-gray foliage plants.
Artemisia, catmint, blue fescue, Mexican-bush sage, and lamb’s ear are good choices. Include a variety of fragrant herbs like lavender, rosemary, and thyme.
Olive and citrus trees also provide a Mediterranean touch. Lightly colored boulders placed within the garden will also help mimic the Mediterranean landscape.
