Fairly easy to replicate, this dramatic border includes a couple of spectacular elements which thrive on neglect while providing striking color and contrast for weeks: the showy spiky, silvery-blue Miss Willmott's Ghost (Eryngium giganteum) and the fresh-looking pink Echinacea purpurea (Purple Coneflower).

Low maintenance, pest and disease-free, deer and drought tolerant, all these plants also make excellent cut flowers!
