It is a rather large commercial planting that demonstrates, above all, courage, since four plant species seldom seen together were used: blue or sheep fescue (Festuca ovina ``Glauca''), pyracantha and grevillea
shrubs, and the camphor tree (Cinnamomum camphora).
Shrubs: banana shrub (Michelia figo), bottiebrush, breath of heaven, butterfly bush, Caesalpinia, Ceanothus, Escallonia, Euonymus japonicus, fuchsia, Grevillea
, heavenly bamboo, hydrangea, India hawthorn, lavender, rose, rosemary, strawberry tree, toyon.
Also try blue hibiscus (Alyogyne huegelii), grevillea
, kangaroo paw, and Westringia fruticosa from Australia; Cape mallow (Anisodontea x hypomandarum), Cape plumbago, kniphofia, leucospermum, and lion's tail (Leonotis leonurus) from South Africa; or Pride of Madeira (Echium candicans) and rockrose from the Mediterranean region.
A low-maintenance blue fescue lawn is surrounded by agaves, artemisia, feathery cassia, woolly grevillea
, and other unthirsty plants.
Like the mythical Proteus, the Greek "old man of the sea" who could assume many different shapes at will, the genus Grevillea
seems to reinvent itself from one plant to the next.
Most, like Callistemon, Eremophila, and Grevillea
, handle aridity, wind, and heat.
