Looking for an arresting border idea for your garden that would also be low care and deer resistant? You found it. Interplant the intriguing spires of lavender-purple airy bouquets of Orchid Primrose (Primula vialii) with the fluffy bottlebrush flowers of Japanese Burnet (Sanguisorba obtusa) and the eye-catching, violet-blue bouquets of Clustered Bellflower (Campanula glomerata). Let their blossoms wave a lovely tapestry that will gracefully sway in the breeze in mid summer. Enjoy!
