Herbs for Texture

Texture is an important garden design element because it can add interest and depth to a space even when there is no color.  Without textural contrast, our gardens would be flat and lifeless.

When looking for plants to add this important element to your garden, herbs are a natural choice; thyme with its tiny mouse ear leaves, sprawling Rosemary ‘Prostratus' and wooly mullein.  There is no shortage of interesting plant forms, leaf shapes and patterns to combine with your favorite annuals and perennials.
