Exclusive to High Country Gardens, our Soft Colors Inferno Strip Pre-Planned Garden was created by renowned Colorado garden designer Lauren Springer. When faced with the prospect of revitalizing or removing a strip of dying Kentucky Bluegrass on her property, she replaced it with a beautiful combination of tough, xeric, lower growing perennials. This garden is designed for an inferno strip (also called hellstrip or parking strip, the narrow space between the sidewalk and street). It includes a mix of North American native plants as well as plants from around the world that thrive in hot, sunny, sites like those found against garage walls, along driveways, or in raised brick planter beds.

The Soft Colors Inferno Strip Pre-Planned Garden is available in two sizes, and comes with a garden map and care and planting instructions. For best results, we recommend planting with Yum Yum Mix and Root Stimulator Combo Pack, and mulching with 2” of crushed gravel. Pair with our Soft Colors Garden Fall-Planted Bulb Collection.

The large garden covers 60 square feet (5’ x 12’) and includes 27 plants:
1 x Red Valerian (Centranthus)
1 x Walker's Deep Blue Nepeta
2 x Seafoam Artemisia
2 x Purple Poppy Mallow (Callirhoe)
3 x Dwarf Pink Lamb's Ear
3 x Agastache neomexicana
3 x Firewitch Dianthus
3 x Rocky Mountain Penstemon
3 x Red Rocks Penstemon
3 x Caradonna Salvia
3 x Blue Woolly Veronica
Large garden is not recommended for coastal areas of California, Washington, and Oregon, as the Valerian (Centranthus) can behave aggressively there.

The small garden covers 30 square feet (3’ x 10’) and includes 18 plants:
1 x Caradonna Salvia
3 x Walker's Deep Blue Nepeta
2 x Seafoam Artemisia
2 x Purple Poppy Mallow (Callirhoe)
2 x Dwarf Pink Lamb's Ear
2 x Agastache neomexicana
2 x Firewitch Dianthus
2 x Rocky Mountain Penstemon
2 x Blue Woolly Veronica

Plants are subject to change due to availability. Any substitutions will feature plants with similar attributes suitable to the garden design. Not all plants will be in bloom at the same time, as may be depicted in the artist’s rendering.
