Design Ideas

I'm currently rethinking my large flower bed, and I'm always on the lookout for inspiration. This post on container gardens from the Terrain Bulletin has some great ideas. I especially like this combo since I want to incorporate some ornamental grasses, and cone flower and hyssop are two mainstays of my garden. The structure the grass provides will help support the cone flower and hyssop, two floppers.
The main thing lacking in my current design is a low growing plant, but I remembered recently that I have always wanted lots of pinks (Silene sp.). Perhaps this one from North Creek Nurseries will do:

Another garden renovation/expansion will have to wait until fall.
