Love the idea of Salvia Amsted, Verd. I bought 3 for a friend who is now doing me some cuttings for next year. Could keep mauve theme by underplanting with annual verbenas? ( I think amistad is Spanish for friendship, so I formally propose it as the flower mascot for this thread?)
I am very happy with my new roundabout bed, about the same size as your bed DD.
Now planted with ornamental grasses, small rudbeckias, verb. bonariensis, and with my tree stumps, all finished of with my little house on the prairie, as supplied by Gardengirl.
