Flower Filled Succession Planting for Heat and Sun

This combination provides rich feeding for pollinators from the late spring-flowering Ceanothus through the entire summer with Matrona Sedum and Moonlight Coreopsis. Flowers are set off beautifully in color and texture by the soft toffee-colored evergreen Carex grass, with winter interest from the crinkled evergreen leaves of the Ceanothus and shaggy blue-tinted pine.
