This casual and cottage-y perennial plant combination for full sun employs a variety of flower shapes to create interest. The Jerusalem sage is decorated with dollops of yellow along rigid stems and mingles with the hovering orbs of Allium cristophii. The dried flowers of both are architecturally interesting even after the color fades. Spires of purple from Salvia n. 'Caradonna' add yet another element to the shape study. This trio is rounded out with the addition of a swaying grass with a narrow profile and a long-blooming, easy-care shrub rose with a relaxed habit. Two varieties of grasses provide fine texture and late summer “flowers” as they occupy the ground plane (Fescue) and as an upright form (Calamagrostis). This combination looks great from spring to late summer.
These 6 plants were carefully selected to work perfectly together by garden design guru, Darcy Daniels of Bloomtown® Gardens.
