Big red sage and Texas bluebells

Planter 1

Sweet potato vine, pentas and lavender. We'll see how that works

Hill country penstemon

Penstemon triflorus

Leucophyllum frutescens 'Heavenly Cloud'

I love your ballfield garden! That's a great (re-)use of the water, adding such a nice splash of color. And the plants seem to appreciate it as well :)
