Three-season Garden for Full Sun

Foliage and flowers in warm tones provide beauty and attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. Drought-tolerant once established, these plants look best and flower most during their active growing season from spring to fall. For that reason, this combination is best suited for a location that doesn't need to look its best in winter. If winter interest is a priority, another planting vignette will be a better choice. Most of these plants go dormant in winter, though the tawny remains of the ornamental grass when it goes dormant provides some interest.

The planting plan that is available for download includes three different layout options that use these plants.
