Help W/Creating Woodland Look
Hi All! I need to create a woodland look, in a warm and sunny back yard area, for a job in Pasadena, CA. I'm seeking suggestions for plants that have that "shady woodland" look, but are suitable for a warm and sunny area, and are also appropriate for a lower water use garden. Anyone have any suggestions for how to approximate the look? I'm not interested in using trees (unless they are VERY small) as there is not enough room. MOstly shrubs, perennials, grasses, groundcover, vines. And keeping in mind the space is about 24" x 32". There will be a small center section of turf, surrounded by borders of plants, so I'm seeking plants that fit into this scale.
Thanks so much for your input! :)
