Wonderfully bold, this glowing perennial border combines flower colors and shapes to create a spectacular effect. Easy to re-create in your garden, this planting is care-free and uses little water. Simply interplant Crocosmia 'Bright Eyes' (Montbretia), Agapanthus 'Loch Hope' (Lily of the Nile), Chionochloa rubra (Red Tussock Grass) and enjoy weeks of drama!

Most plants are deer resistant, drought tolerant and have won prestigious awards. They make excellent fresh cut flowers that can be pleasantly enjoyed at home too!
