Beautiful side bed, I really find it elegant. Would you be able to tell me what zone you are in Vancouver? I am in zone 4b. I would really appreaciate if you could provide me a list of the perennials you chose for this garden.

I am just starting to garden seriously.

I thank you,

This stands out even though it's a small garden. The colors, textures and composition all collaborate to give
the beholder a visual pleasure that is exceptional. Well done!

Thanks for the kind words! I can't say it's the result of a master plan--I used some plants I already had, and then infilled with others that I liked ;o)
