Plant Combo for Sun Featuring Sedum Goodbud

This is a wonderfully simple, so easy to replicate, perennial plant combo for full sun. The frothy yellow blooms of the threadleaf coreopsis are an effective counterpoint to the broad clusters of pink blooms atop stiff stems of the Mr. Goodbud stonecrop. The steady presence of yellow foliage from Hakonechloa 'All Gold' provides color from spring to frost in a gently flowing form that introduces a sense of movement to the scene. Overall, the variety in foliage texture and plant forms creates an engaging and energetic vignette.
