Perennial Plant Combo for Full Sun

Orbs of purple, spires of peach, and tawny panicles that move in the breeze; the spring-to-summer blooms of this drought tolerant perennial plant combo for full sun are a perfect pairing for the finely textured evergreen foliage of blue oat grass. Selecting two varieties of allium extends the bloom season and introduces variety in the size of the heads. Verbascum 'Jackie' will typically produce another wave of bloom if cut back after its first flush of blooms has faded.
