Planting Design for Dry Gardens by Olivier Filippi

Do you garden in a dry area? 
I love this teaching approach by Olivier Filippi.















1: Salvia chamaedryoides
2: Rhodanthemum hosmariense
3: Artemisia abrotanum 'Silver'
4: Phlomis 'The South'
5: Senecio vira-vira
6: Salvia fruticosa
7: Salvia leucophylla
8: Artemisia lanata

This photo and information is from a French website that I cannot translate into English. It is by the authority on dry gardens, Olivier Filippi, and is very good. Check it out:   http://www.jardin-sec.com/

Also he wrote a great book called 'Planting Design for Dry Gardens'. 

Nigel Dunnett says, "In Planting Design for Dry Gardens Olivier Filippi has charted a future for garden and planting Design. Combining authoritative practical advice with deep ecological insight, Olivier shows how learning from nature can give us the best of all worlds: beautiful and sustainable gardens with a unique sense of place. I challenge anyone not to be inspired by this important work".
