Plant Archetypes

Plant study area 2:

Landscape inspiration:

A landscape of glossy green colors contrasting with fine grasses/grass-like textures, with fountain and vase shape plants emerging from the groundcover layer in distinct tufts.

Our design response to test:

  • Use groundcover plants with glossy textures that will create a homogenously flat lower layer
  • Leave enough space between grasses/clusters of grasses so the plant form is visible

Groundcover Layer (50%)
Fragaria chiloensis
Filler Species (5-10%)
Lupinus bicolor
Seasonal Layer (25-40%)
Lupinus variicolor
Phacelia californica
Structural Layer(10-15%)
Calamagrostis nutkaensis
Deschampsia cespitosa
