Sun Worshiping Perennial Plant Combo

This perennial plant combo for sun sports a variety of bloom shapes. Curious blue bracts of Eryngium 'Sapphire Blue' emerge deep blue and fade as the season progresses; pendulous apple green bells of Nicotiana langsdorfii, a great visual mingler, lend a delicate effect and echo the green tones in the unusual bicolor petals of Echinacea 'Green Envy'. This trio blooms over a long period from summer into early fall and interest is further extended by the attractive dried seed heads of the sea holly and coneflower if left in place.
