A Long-Lasting Summer Idea for your Borders with Lavender, Achillea and Sedum

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Summer Borders


If you are looking for a long-lasting border idea with drought tolerant, fairly pest-free and low maintenance plants, you have found it! Combine the delightfully scented purple blooms of Lavender with the pink-tinted pancake-like flower heads of Yarrow (Achillea), the deep burgundy foliage of Sedum and the golden-brown domes of Weeping Brown Sedge (Carex flagellifera) and enjoy months of color and happy butterflies from early summer to fall!

A perfect planting idea for gravel or rock gardens and cottage gardens. Deer and rabbit resistant!
