A Hot Border Idea with Achillea, Hemerocallis and Grasses

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Summer Borders


Awash with colors and shapes from early to late summer, this hot border is really fascinating. It combines the brilliant reds, yellows and oranges of Hemerocallis 'Anzac', Helenium 'Waldtraut', Dahlia 'Bishop of Oxford', Achillea 'Terracotta' and 'Coronation Gold', Erysimum 'Apricot Delight' and rose 'Darcey Bussel'.

They are artfully interplanted with the cool blues of Veronica longifolia 'Blue Giant'.

Attractive to butterflies, hummingbirds and low maintenance, most plants are deer or rabbit resistant and are recipient of prestigious awards. Enjoy!
