A Long-Lasting Planting Idea with Japanese Anemones and Coneflowers

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Summer Borders, Fall Borders


Only 3 plants comprise this naturalistic combination. Designed for late summer interest and color and extending its brilliant colors well into fall, this plant palette can be easily replicated in many sunny garden situations. It includes the rich golden yellow flowers of Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Goldsturm' and the delicate pale pink blossoms of Japanese Anemone 'September Charm'. Behind these robust perennials, the spectacular flower plumes of Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster' (Feather Reed Grass) provide an eye-catching and harmonious backdrop that will remain attractive throughout winter.

Fabulous looking and low care, this attractive late summer combination of ornamental grasses and perennials is a feast for the eye. 

A perfect planting idea for cottage gardens or prairie plantings. All plants are deer and rabbit resistant. Enjoy!
