Acer palmatum (unknown) edged with Hakonechloa macra ‘Albovariegata’.
Makes a sharp autumn contrast and, as a neat edging, hides a multitude of hard landscaping sins😉
More harmonious, are the plumes of Miscanthus sinensis ‘Adagio’.
In turn, bamboos act as an evergreen grassy backdrop.
Right now, it’s one of my favourite spots to sit and stare.
