Candy tuft

My free packet of Candy tuft has been my reliable filler for years. Cheerful little mounds of , well only  purple  now.   
They seem perfectly at home in my dry soil .


Filling in any available space , but in a not trying to over take the garden.

Next year I might even buy a packet , so I get all the different colors again.

Achillea, Knatia macedonica , Acanthus spinosus  with Pittosporum 'tall and tough' and the last of the Aquilegia .

 A whopping big Hallmium 'Sarah' with a small H. 'mickie' behind , and two nice Verbascum  blooms.

Persicaria  polymorpha just keeps growing 

And lastly …because I found a nice pot for Leptospermum 'nahum ruru'.
