Foliage and flowers in warm tones provide beauty and attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.
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.
This vignette is especially suited for smaller gardens thanks to the dwarf stature of its anchoring shrub, Winecraft Black® Smokebush. If you’re gardening in a larger space and/or have difficulty finding this recently introduced variety, Cotinus 'Grace' would make a fine substitute, though you’ll want to re-evaluate quantity and spacing to accommodate its larger size.
These six plants were carefully selected to work perfectly together by garden design guru, Darcy Daniels of Bloomtown® Gardens.
