Blooming Perennial Combo with Contrasting Bloom Shapes

Contrasting bloom shapes energize this simple, but effective perennial planting combination for full sun. Verbascum 'Jackie' can be persuaded to deliver an encore of peach bloom spires if deadheaded and the Allium 'Purple Sensation' continues to add architectural interest if the dried orbs are left in place after the flower color fades.
