Summer Blooms for Full Sun

This plant combination provides bright and colorful, drought-tolerant blooms from early summer into fall. Though it's most showy in late summer / early fall, evergreen foliage plays a role as well. The hebe, bronze sedge, and basal foliage of the yarrow are present year-round, providing structure with foliage in muted tones.
