Vivid Red and Yellow Combo for Sun

Nothing demure about this brazen plant combo for sun with its vivid contrasts of red and yellow. Knock Out Red is a super tough and easy-care rose. The finely textured blooms of Salvia 'Hot Lips' provide a color echo and its fragrant foliage weaves up, over, around and through the rose. Evergreen Choisya 'Gold Fingers' provides bright yellow foliage and all-season structure. The golden Japanese forest grass covers the ground with clumps of cascading foliage.
