Summer Blooming Drought Tolerant Perennial Combo in Orange and Purple

This easy-to-grow trio of sun-loving perennials provide color from early summer through late fall; the color scheme is cheerful and vibrant in early summer when the orange lily and purple salvia share the stage. The orange lilies will fade just in time so as to not collide and clash with the pink phase of Sedum 'Autumn Joy's chameleon-like progression from apple-green, to blush-pink, to deep-pink, to maroon and finally, brown seed heads when dormant.
