DESIGN ELEMENTSLiving Path Edges.
|Lirope Stripey White|
growing along a path like a living edge.
What do you have growing along your path?
Perhaps you have terracotta or brick borders or maybe even a steel edge.
Let’s find out.
I'm talking with Glenice Buck from www.glenicebuckdesigns.com.au
The top picks for living path edges were
Santolina chamaecyparissus-very hardy and self-shaping.
Alternanthera Little Ruby-not for frosty areas.
Liriope muscari variegated such as Glenice’s favourite called 'Stripey White' growing to a max of 20cm in height.
Teucrium fruiticans or Germander.
Repeat flowering dwarf agapanthus with white flowers called Bingo. Lookout for it in your nursery.

PLANT OF THE WEEK
Here’s a much smaller relative of one of Australia’s native giant trees, Angophora costata.
- How do angophoras differ from eucalypts?
|Angophora hispida flower|
Angophora hispida has an extremely small distribution but worth growing because of the many features. Growing naturally in heath and open woodland as a smallish gnarly looking tree, however it will grow in a variety of soil types including clay.
- Height is a maximum of 6m.
