Mixed Border with Generous Blooms for Sun

Emphasis of this combo leans towards a progression of flower in rich purple, pink and blue tones. The frothy purple moor grass and compact weigela with variegated foliage add textural contrast and foliage in light tones. While there are a couple of important evergreen players, it will be strongest in spring and early summer. In terms of all-season impact, Cedrus deodara 'Silver Mist' carries the weight.
