zinnia and imerata cylindrica in a border

Breaking stereotypes in flower bed edging, garden designers at Hamburg Garden Show went for a 'cutting edge'.

We like the simplicity of this plant combination. Zinnias and Japanese blood grass (imperata cylindrica) look unusual paired together at the edge of a flower bed. As spotted at Hamburg Garden Show 2013.

Be careful about replicating it at home though: Japanese bloodgrass will spread quickly to other areas of your garden.
