Iris
My spring garden is richly violet including redbuds, Texas mountain laurel, phlox, iris, and monarda to name a few.

Grape color and scent

Clever use of seasonal color throughout the seasons is used at the Fort Worth Botanical Garden. The Cactus Garden is surrounded by a horseshoe shaped planting of several understory trees. Gracing the entrance is Texas mountain laurel (spring flowering), next is Desert-willow (summer flowering), and forming a back drop to the cactus, an artistic canvas of sunny Retama. The trees are Texas and Mexican (Retama) natives and water-saving.

  1. I do love this color family with a garden full of phlox and iris. Redbud is one of my favorite trees too.
