The design intent of the Floral Colour Garden is to create an
informal garden in which one could stroll in an alternate landscape;
such as coloured floral displays; laid out by colours, starting
with pink and working through red, orange, yellow, white, blue,
purple and lavender and different natural habitats such as the
wooded areas with native trees, and into open, grassy spaces.
The Xeriphytic Garden
John Lawrus had a vision.
Xeriscaping means using local plants and drought
tolerant plants that can grow and sustain themselves with low
water requirements and tolerate heat and drought conditions.
This does not mean only cacti and thorny succulents found in arid
environments, but to any plant that can survive in this kind of
environment such as ornamental grasses and flowering perennials.
You can have a xeriscape without sacrificing color, texture or
structure the normal elements of any landscape.
Tolerant plants can be xeriphytic but they can also sustain
an added tolerance to salt
