Sun-loving Plant Combo Colorful Flowers and Great Foliage

This full sun plant combination provides color from late spring through early fall with its riot of blooms—alive with bees, butterflies, and hummers—it provides a delightful distraction of beauty and fragrance. The flowery display includes an array of varied, but harmonious tones; a mingling of coral, magenta, yellow, orange, peach, and melon blooms. Framed by a trio of evergreen shrubs which include: a finely-textured, dwarf conifer with an upward sweeping tear drop form, a fountain of strappy, yellow variegated foliage of the yucca, and  the Pittosporum with its deep green, leathery foliage and rounded form.  As the season progresses, the upright form of the moor grass takes on tawny tones.
