with Echinacea! Autumn Joy Sedum, Echinacea/Purple Cone Flower, Russian Sage/Pervoskia atriplicifolia and Joe Pye weed/Eupatorium purpureum. Possibly asters in the foreground, Persicaria amplexicaulis middle right?
Anise Hyssop Black Adder, red & yellow barberry: Spanish Lavender blooms for a longer time than most lavenders do and it has lovely silvery foliage that will play well with these other shrubs when the flowers are finished.
Granite Setts are incredibly hard wearing, making them a great choice for high traffic areas such as pathways like in this garden pathway design by Thorburn Landscapes. Nice design to use for narrow patio area outside french windows.
