Daily Garden: Duncan Garden in Spokane, WA

What a beautiful trailing wall — with not a dreadful creeping phlox in sight (I think).   Anyone able to identify some of these plants?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Very pretty. It breaks the rule of using contrasting forms for a gorgeous mono-texture mono-shape (better word?) multichromatic effect. So new theory, if you have enough variety in any one of texture, shape and color you can keep the others mostly constant and get a sleek look. I bet I would like it even in shades of green though.

    This is so lovely! exuberant! a spring shock of bold color! YES!

    Surely, in the wall is:
    and, perhaps, Iberis.

    Awesome color.
