Enjoy a glowing and colorful garden in late summer or fall. Combine the crimson flower spikes of Kniphofia rooperi (Red Hot Poker),  the azure-blue spires of Aconitum carmichaelii 'Arendsii' (Monkshood) and the vibrant deep violet blossoms of Aster amellus 'Violet Queen' (Italian Asters) with bold ornamental grasses such as Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster' (Feather Reed Grass) and the lovely Miscanthus sinensis 'Yakushima Dwarf' (Maiden Grass). Glistening in the late season, these easy-to-grow perennials make a striking contrast to the soft autumnal hues of the grasses.

Add fragrance to the border with the almost continuously blooming Rose 'Sally Holmes' and enjoy a delightful color show, that will enlighten your garden for weeks.

Most plants are top performers and have been awarded prestigious awards. Fairly easy to replicate, this plant combination will make your neighbors envious. Enjoy!
