A mediterranean garden

Low maintenance, drought tolerant, stunning plants: what’s not to love about a Mediterranean garden?


  1. What’s growing: Honey Bush (Melianthus major), Pheasant’s Tail Grass (Stipa arundinacea), Giant Burmese Honeysuckle (Lonicera hildebrandiana), Goldfinger Grass (Libertia peregrinans), Lambs Ears (Stachys byzantina), Olives (Olea), Euphorbia, Roses, a Banana tree…
  2. Place plants a little closer together so the garden looks lush and flowing.
  3. Let plants grow in their natural forms. No heavy pruning here.
  4. Limit your plant list and repeat plants.
  5. Limit your color palette. Here they’ve used green, gold, silver, and burgundy foliage and pale blue, peach, and burgundy flowers.
  6. Hardscaping materials are all in soft, pale, warm tones.
  7. Paved courtyards and decomposed granite pathways vs lawn
