Long blooming, Low Maintenance Mixed Border for Sun

Blooms, with an engaging variety of shapes, provide color from late spring through fall. The floral show commences with Geranium 'Rozanne', a standout hardy geranium that contributes a steady progression of single blue flowers. She's joined by Echinacea 'Merlot', a superior selection of coneflower with large composite blooms; deep pink with a dark eye, and sturdy, black stems. The dark, magenta-pink spires of the knotweed, set against golden foliage, make their entry midsummer. Sword-shaped foliage of Yucca 'Golden Sword' with its golden variegation is evergreen, providing all-season structure, and in midsummer, panicles of ivory blooms are feasted on by hummingbirds.
