Both are qualities that are important in choosing plant materials for the 21st century (and the rain hungry San Francisco Bay Area) One of my new favorite plants is this one - Blue Chalk Sticks : Senecio serpens.
It is smaller than its better known cousin S. mandraliscae, but still that striking blue, low maintenance, drought tolerant ground cover that is good for the Bay Area. It reaches 1' tall and 2' wide.
We are using it adjacent to a flagstone and "D.G." entry in San Jose. Stay Tuned for more.
