A Colorful Summer Border Idea with Hemerocallis, Hosta and Alchemilla

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Summer Borders


Low maintenance, easy-to-grow and brilliantly colored, Daylilies (Hemerocallis) are one of the most popular perennial plants. Loaded with blooms day after day, they provide vibrant color throughout most of the growing season.

You may want to select early season, midseason and late season cultivars to extend their bloom season from early summer to fall.

This plant combination includes 7 gorgeous Daylilies with different flowering seasons for a longer display: 'Irish Envy' (Early Season), 'Charles Johnston' and 'Siloam Double Classic' (Early Midseason), 'Hyperion', 'Marse Connell' and 'Pink Damask' (Midseason), 'Autumn Accent' (Late season).

They are beautifully interplanted with Veronica longifolia (Speedwell), Alchemilla mollis (Lady's Mantle) and Hosta (Plaintain Lily).

Attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds, most plants will enchant you and your garden year after year. Enjoy!
