Bright Blooms with Black and Yellow Foliage

The reliable and showy Knock Out red rose blooms from early summer onward and in combination with the coneflower provide zippy color over a long period. The dark eye and stems of Echinacea 'Merlot' catch the burgundy foliage of the dwarf barberry. The coneflower brings life to the garden with a steady stream of visitors - bees, butterflies and hummers are all enthralled with its blooms. With their steady contribution of structure and contrasting foliage color, Yucca 'Golden Sword' and Concorde barberry have a grounding influence on the overall scene.
