Lovely idea but difficult to get it right isn't it? Wanting to do justice to your daughter by reflecting your love for her in the planting?
I guess most of us have been in this situation at some time. It would be easier if we didnt care so much but we want it special don't we?
I'm not strong on wild flowers but what about lavendar somewhere there?
on the towans behind me wild flowers like oenothera missouriensis (prob spelling incorrect) or evening primrose looks amazing with those yellow flowers. Nature has put these with vipers bugloss ...blue spikes of flowers ...to make an attractive natural plantIng out there. Valerian too. Comes in red, pink and white flowers.
Im also fond of nepeta/catmint. Easy, spreading aromatic leaves and blue flowers all summer,
is there a flower/plant your daughter liked especially?
Whatever you plant there it's clear how much she means to you so don't try too hard to be perfect there. I'm sure you will do your daughter proud
