It’s a great garden if you like hiking and views — or you’re a mountain goat | The Seattle Times

Gary Necci’s love of hiking in the high alpine meadows at Mount Rainier inspired him to turn a mess of a steep backyard hillside into a tapestry of textural plantings in his West Seattle garden.

Euphorbia polychroma: An undemanding perennial, Euphorbia polychroma offers a pleasing contrast of colors on a neat, almost architectural form. It grows to about 15in and produces a splendid show in May from bright yellow bracts. Their color is long lasting, but changes to rose-bronze as they age above the green foliage. A sensational ground cover plant or accent in a sunny garden. Quite tolerant of hot, dry conditions (but not the heat and humidity of the South).

Plant a path with sedum sarmentosum - spreads rapidly - good for poor soils.

Sedum sarmentosum - Spreads rapidly, almost invasive. Good for extremely poor soils. Idea for planting along ditch. Stringy stonecrop, Sedum sarmentosum, is probably the fastest-growing sedum around -- at least in the cold-hardy species.

Rockery slope & steps, need to move the plants on the front of the house, rework the wall and make better grassy areas, easier to mow.

Beautiful, Peaceful Japanese-Gardens.  A good example of how the layout forms the atmosphere in the garden.  The perfect Meditation nook.

Shade garden pathway. Tall astilbe starting to bloom on right. Lots of different ferns, ginger, hostas, huechera. The taller plant on left is likely an actea (baneberry). Mom has some of those you could dig up. On the right, hidden behind the alchemilla, is variegated polemonium, hardy to z4 and preferring shade. GET IT. #GardenPath
