Deep Pink Blooms with Backdrop of Contrasting Foliage

The crimson spires of Persicaria 'Golden Arrow' are especially vivid set against its yellow foliage; the contrast with the dark foliage Coppertina ninebark provides interest all summer long, and when in bloom, a pleasing repetition of color. But with its dark eye, sturdy black stems, and vivid pink composite blooms, Echincea 'Merlot' steal the show when in bloom.
