green green grass

Chelsea garden show is held at the end of May every year. They have different padiglions organized by various garden designers and landscape designers. They're either divided by country or category. These are some pics from a few years ago (2008?) so perhaps they're not completly "in fashion" but some of them are classics. For example the Betulla in the photo above: a unique tree for its white slim trunk. Also its leaves have different colours on either side (one side is more shiney and reflective) so when the wind blows it creates a really nice effect.
Other very architectural plants are obviously the Bamboo! It's been a classic for quite some time and I understand why!
