Injecting color, drama and late-summer fireworks in the garden, dahlias look fabulous on their own or combined with other plants. Many are graceful and integrate well into most borders, creating appealing planting combinations and providing interest from mid summer until the first frost.
To help you plan your summer or early fall garden, here is a plant combination, in shades of golden-yellow and glowing vermilion, which includes 3 incredibly pretty Dahlias, 'Chat Noir', 'Jescot Julie' and 'Karma Bon Bini'.
They are interplanted with easy growing plants such as Agastache 'Blue Fortune' (Giant Hyssop), Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster' (Feather Reed Grass), Echinops ritro 'Veitch's Blue (Globe Thistle), Helenium 'Sahin's Early Flowerer' (Sneezeweed), Heliopsis helianthoides 'Asahi' (False Sunflower) and Persicaria amplexicaulis 'Atrosanguinea' (Mountain Fleece).
Most plants make excellent fresh cut flowers that can be pleasantly enjoyed at home!
