Cheerful Perennial Border with Late Summer Blooms

The cheerfully unique, multi-colored blooms of Helenium 'Carnival' are a perfect pair with the lavender and yellow blooms of its plant combo compatriots: Salvia 'May Night', Kniphofia 'Brimstone', and Aster 'Monch'. The success of this arrangement relies on varied blooms shapes and a cohesive color scheme; single daisy-like flowers contrasting with spikes and spires within limited palette that includes purple, yellow and a dash of magenta. This sun-loving perennial plant combo provides blooms from summer to fall.
