A Cheerful Summer Planting Idea with Dahlia, Cosmos, Echinacea and Ammi visnaga

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Summer Borders, Fall Borders


This desirable and long-lasting summer border is fairly easy to replicate and includes lovely ingredients. Valued for their soft pink blossoms, Dahlias are beautifully leaping up out of a froth of pure white Ammi visnaga (Toothpick Weed) and gloriously team up with the cheerful blossoms of Echinacea purpurea (Coneflower) and Cosmos. 

All these plants make gorgeous cut flowers which can be enjoyed in a vase at home.
