A Charming Border Idea with Alliums, Garden Pinks & Wallflowers

Spring Combination Ideas, Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Spring Borders, Summer Borders


Here is a charming plant combination that can be enjoyed for weeks and is fairly easy to replicate at home. It combines the cheerful and sometimes unusual blossoms of Alliums, Garden Pinks, Sage and Wallflowers for a color explosion from late spring to late summer. Add a few Stonecrops (Sedums) to extend the color fireworks into fall!

Most plants are deer and rabbit resistant, drought tolerant and have won prestigious awards. Enjoy!
