Some plants are such a great accent plant, you wish you had more. But that would break the spell. A row wouldn't make the garden look better. It looks best as a single plant. This is one of those:
|Salvia 'Mystic Spires'|
I have several salvias, and I love them all, but 'Mystic Spires' is the most impressive! It grows taller than most of the other salvias, reaching around 3 ft. in my garden. I love the way it blooms with a bang, spiraling out, reminding me of fireworks. It attracts bees and hummingbirds. So, shouldn't I want more?
Actually, more wouldn't be better. Here's where the saying "less is more" really is true! This plant, even though it's fairly tall, is placed at the front of the bed. It draws your eye to it. It is a great accent plant. Tall, visually exciting, but not taking up much visual mass, which is why it works so well even in the front of the bed.
I might not want more, but I definitely think this is a must have!
