A Luminous Perennial Planting Idea with Echinacea pallida and Agastache

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Prairie Planting Ideas, Summer Borders


Awash with colors and shapes, this luminous plant combination brilliantly associates the elegant, soft pink Echinacea pallida (Pale Purple Coneflower) with the vertical white spires of Agastache rugosa f. albiflora (Giant Hyssop) and the graceful rose flower spikes of Pennisetum orientale (Oriental Fountain Grass).

You may want to further spice up this prairie style planting with the bold, steel blue globe-shaped flowers of Echinops ritro (Globe Thistle). With a long season of interest, most plants are drought tolerant, deer resistant, low maintenance, excellent as cut flowers and real magnets for butterflies and bees! Enjoy!
