These subtle and intriguing beds were designed by Rebecca Batchie for a garden in Kent, Connecticut, and punctuate the ends of two long mixed borders. They add continuity to this garden and their mirror-image layout unites the two beds. The plants in this garden include elephant ears (Colocasia esculenta cv., Zones 8-11), asparagus fern (Asparagus densiflorus, Zone 11), Oxalis (Oxalis cv., Zones 9-11), and a bronze sedge (Carex sp., Zones 6-9).
