Giant metal flower sculptures. These could make quite a statement in your garden yes?
Agave (mediopicta alba?) in a waterfall of acacia.
These sempervivum are hardy to very low temps so this idea could be used just about anywhere! It's been widely copied but I still think it's cool.

No visit to this nursery is complete without checking on the car!
Vertical gardening is not my personal cup of tea but these are so well done that they won my admiration.
While Grubb tends to lean toward modern design, there are pieces of all styles to be found.
Next time I visit, it will be with a car so that I can bring home more plant treasures!
The well known wall of chairs.

Still loving these glorious palms.
Cool combination to copy!
An imaginative way to display sarracenias.
I bet these would be comfortable but might be a little interesting to get in and out of. Who cares, they look great!
Ah to grow phormium without loosing them every few years.
Loved this combination of powdery blue with burgundy foliage.
