This big and blowzy perennial combo for full sun delivers a steady succession of blooms summer to fall and is attractive to bees, butterflies and hummers. Blooms includes the ever-reliable, long-blooming Geranium 'Rozanne', Jerusalem sage with its unique yellow whorls atop gray-green evergreen foliage, Sedum 'Autumn Joy' with its pleasing progression spring to fall, and all are backed by the stately Joe Pye Weed. Sundowner phormium (treat as an annual where it's not hardy) adds a touch of drama with its strappy, colorful foliage and strong form. Carex testacea's fine evergreen texture makes an effective groundcover.
