Here is another one of the wonderful gardens that will be on the popular Master Gardeners Inside Austin Gardens Tour 2015 on Saturday, October 17. The tour provides a rare look inside six private gardens and a public experimental garden.
The gardens demonstrate 7 unique styles. This is my preview of the Flashy Natives Garden. Enjoy this sneak peek and then see it in person on the tour next weekend.
401 Cloudview Dr Austin, TX 78745
This garden is very much a collector's garden, with many different varieties of plants to create wonderful combinations of texture and color and form.
This garden is a very Southwestern cottage style, incorporating yuccas and grasses one might not see in a cooler climate traditional cottage garden.
Patio pots offer more focal points around the seating areas.
And no cottage garden would be complete without a little picket fence.
Tickets for all 7 gardens are $19 in advance or $20 at any garden location on the day of the tour. Single garden tickets for $5 can also be purchased at each garden. Purchase advance tickets here.
