This waterwise perennial planting combination for a full sun garden provides long-lasting summer-into-fall blooms, fragrance and is a magnet for hummingbirds, bees and pollinators.
Sedum x 'Autumn Joy' (stonecrop) is a common perennial for good reason — it's a workhorse. The show begins with fresh emerging succulent foliage in spring which is followed by the lovely blush-pink blooms of summer that are pictured here, which will age into attractive seed heads that remain decorative well into late fall.
Agastache 'Apricot Sunrise' (giant hyssop) is wonderfully fragrant and a magnet for hummingbirds. It will do best in full sun situations with good drainage and won't tolerate a site that is consistently wet in winter.
Towards the back, the coneflower rounds out this trio. Pictured here is Echinacea purpurea 'Merlot'.
The harmonious color scheme, diverse bloom shapes and textures make for a pleasing combination.
