Consider the soft, weeping seed heads of fountain grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides) gently mingling among the sturdy, upright-growing Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’. This pairing appears in the Perennial Allée Borders designed by Edith Eddleman and Doug Ruhren at the Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham, North Carolina.
