A partner for a Boskoop Ruby?
I bought a beautiful 'Boskoop Ruby' last year and would like to show it off this year with a suitable plant patner behind it. Last year I planted Senecio cineraria silver dust but of course they did not grow tall enough to compliment the Boskoop which will reach 60cm.
I was wondering if any of you had any suggestions.



Is it a Cistus plant you are referring to?...:>)

How about Artemisia 'Silver King' or Eryngium Gigantium?

Its a Cytisus plant I believe, no idea what that means though!

Wagger, thank you for the suggestions, Artemisia is a great idea as long as I can keep it under control but then the Eryngium is also a possibility. Will have to have a think but at least I now have a choice.

As Wagger says, Eryngium would be lovely...:>)

Cytisus = broom, though not for sweeping, lol

Ahhh I see, well i've now learnt something knew, it certainly does look like a 'broom' at the moment.
