Current project

Chocolate Garden! Any suggestions? I've found chocolate mint, chocolate iris, and chocolate cosmos! This perennial garden is near my brown turkey fig. I'm going to mix in peaches and pinks.

Thanks for accepting the friend request.... I thought I remembered a chocolate pittosporum but didn't find what I had in mind... there is one with chocolate colored twigs but the leaves are green/white variegated..... I bumped into this while I was looking for the pittosporum
