dim- bamboo looks nice, Id assume the palm will not be hardy around here though, dont think there are any hardy ones, i definately like the ferns, brunnera, hachonechloa and hostas
White gardens- i like cannas but for the most part may stray away from for residential site unless the customer already has some bulbs that are not cold hardy
reddens-i forgot about ajugas! they are really nice plants especially for river rock and bolder ponds, looks really good! only problem im thinking of is planting in a new planting area, im thinkin it might take over if the other plants are not established
edit- i think if i were to redo this i would have used ajuga instead of the sedums, just afraid of it taking over but i think the grasses and juniper could handle it
thanks for the input guys!
