Plant Combo with Bronze Grasses and Coral Blooms

This fun planting scheme features purple fountain grass (Pennisetum 'Rubrum'); a fun grass to grow but it's important to know that it's an annual, so won't return the following year. It's paired with another bronze grass called Carex 'Toffee Twist', blooms in warm coral tones are provided by echinacea and agastache, and the entire vignette is anchored by the dwarf conifer, Cedrus deodara 'Silver Mist'.
