This English-style border brims with gorgeous blooms such as scarlet peonies, soft pastel roses, purple salvias and tall spikes of Digitalis purpurea. More than enough to make the garden sing from late spring to fall.

To recreate this lovely planting at home, you may want to combine the crimson blooms of Paeonia lactiflora 'Karl Rosenfield' with the fragrant rosettes of Rose 'A Shropshire Lad' and Rose 'Lichfield Angel'. Interplant the cool purple flower spikes of Salvia x sylvestris 'Mainacht', the showy mauve-pink bracts of Salvia sclarea (Clary Sage) with the architectural pastel colored Digitalis purpurea, and enjoy a terrific summer garden!

Most plants have won prestigious awards and are ignored by hungry deer and rabbits.
