Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Border Planting Ideas, Summer Borders, Fall Borders


Create seductive plant combinations like this one. Combine the architectural Kniphofia 'Jenny Bloom' (Red Hot Poker) with the fragrant Foeniculum vulgare 'Rubrum' (Bronze Fennel) and the amusing Briza media (Quaking Grass). Underplant them with indefatigable bloomers such as Achillea millefolium 'Red Velvet' (Yarrow) and Leucanthemum x superbum 'Snowcap' (Shasta Daisy). In addition to being interesting and unusual, this planting will attract scores of hummingbirds.

Easy to grow and drought tolerant, these plants will contribute to a fabulous garden that you will admire day after day, all summer long. Enjoy!
