Consider texture. Texture appeals to us on a tactile level. Well-designed gardens generally have a lot of texture. Notice how the two plants shown here, a Blue Cascade atlas cedar (Cedrus atlantica ‘Blue Cascade’, zones 6 to 9) and Toffee Twist hair sedge (Carex flagellifera ‘Toffee Twist’, zones 7 to 10), couldn’t be more different in size, shape and color. It is the similarity of texture that ties them together. Their texture in common begs the garden visitor to reach out and touch.
