Long Blooming Plant Combo for Full Sun

This plant combo boasts a long succession of bloom pairings AND drought tolerance. The season begins with the Erysimum 'Winter Orchid'. But don't let the name fool you, this beauty is covered with warm peach and fuchsia blooms virtually all year. The purple spheres of the ornamental onion then emerge, creating a sculptural accent that lasts, dried, for the rest of the season. The long blooming coneflowers and the stonecrop create robust sprays of beautiful blooms, adored by bees. The architectural spikes of the liatris flower create another contrast of form. These flowers are beautiful in bloom and still interesting as seed heads as the season progresses. The yucca mixes in nicely with its year round appeal and sculptural form.
