This plant pairing uses 2 spectacular, upright perennial plants with contrasting flower colors and shapes. Stars of a long-lasting show acted out in rich burgundy-red and violet-blue, are the bell-shaped flowers of Penstemon 'Rich Ruby' (Beardtongue) and the vertical spikes of Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna' (Sage). 

Both plants are deer or rabbit resistant, drought tolerant and are top performers, earning them the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society. They make excellent fresh cut flowers that can be pleasantly enjoyed at home too!
