The Contemporary Mediterranean Garden style features a palette of plants that are centered around the highly popular Marina strawberry tree. This handsome evergreen tree is valued for its interesting trunk and bark character as well as rich, glossy green foliage, pink flowers and orange fruit. It serves well as a focal element in courtyards and garden settings where a great diversity of flowering shrubs, perennials, grasses and succulents help achieve colorful and abundant garden planting.
There are many good foliage and flowering companion plants to combine with the Marina strawberry tree. These include New Zealand tea trees, Dwarf peppermint tree, blanket flower and fernleaf yarrows. Many of these plants grow well in pots in courtyard situations and can be placed to fit preferred sun and shade conditions. Such a planting palette can fit the confines of townhomes and high-density housing spaces.
