Hot Orange Flowers with Cool White Grass

A fun planting combination of sun loving, summer blooming perennials; vivid orange blooms jazz it up; frothy white variegated foliage cools it down. Bringing the heat is Hemerocallis 'Lady Lucille' and Helenium 'Mardi Gras'. Miscanthus 'Morning Light', with it light colored foliage and fine texture, is a calming influence. This drought tolerant trio does best in full sun.
