Articles / Garden Design / Planting Beside Driveways

I’ve decided to use a limited palette of plants for an area along a driveway. A line of compact white flowering Xerochrysum bracteatum plants and Grevillea ‘Lady O’ provide a low informal border behind which are eastern seaboard banksias.

 

New plants of the Xerochrysum daisy are easy to grow from cuttings and will be planted between the existing plants to provide continuity. The old daisies will be cut back in Spring to rejuvenate them; those that don’t survive will be replaced.
