Create a beautiful garden path or walkway with this colorful and long-lasting plant combination idea that will enchant your walks for weeks from spring to early summer. 3 outstanding low, sprawling, mat-forming perennials have been selected, all of them with such profuse blooms that they completely obscure their handsome, semi-evergreen foliage!

Tip: Use this perennial combination idea to create bold, vertical effects and let these 3 trailing plants, richly cascade over rocks, low walls or the edge of raised beds. Perfect for the rock garden too!

All plants are deer and drought tolerant. Enjoy!
