Flower Power

Celebrate the summer.



In San Francisco, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, designer Jarrod Baumann of Zeterre Landscape Architecture rocks and rolls with hardy perennials that will weather periods of rain and drought. Two standouts, also great for cut flowers, include California Leucospermum cordifolium “California Sunshine” / Pincushion Protea, with long-lasting yellow otherworldly blossoms, which thrives even in foggy coastal locations; and, for textural interest, the spiky deer- and rabbit-resistant Eryngium planum “Blue Glitter” / Sea Holly, with thistle-like blue flowers that have showy seed heads birds and butterflies love. zeterre.com

Their surreal aesthetics are complemented by handmade French Astier de Villatte tableware found at San Francisco’s Sue Fisher King store, including the milky white glazed terra-cotta Grand Chalet soup and dinner plates, $60–$140; Petulla tumblers, $105; and Rocaille vase, $290. suefisherking.com
