Wonderfully bold, this perennial border combines colors and shapes to create a long-lasting and spectacular effect from summer to fall. The recipe to achieve such a magnetically attractive garden is quite simple: combine the primrose flower spikes of Kniphofia 'Percy's Pride' (Red Hot Poker) with the metallic blue heads of Eryngium x zabelii 'Jos Eijking' (Sea Holly) and the crimson foliage of Imperata cylindrica 'Red Baron' (Japanese Blood Grass).

Add the majestic Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster' (Feather Reed Grass) and architectural Phormium tenax Purpureum Group (New Zealand Flax). Underplant these easy-to-grow perennials and ornamental grasses with the glowing blooms of Arctotis x hybrida 'Flame' (African Daisy) and enjoy weeks of drama!

All plants are deer resistant, drought tolerant and low maintenance.
