A Naturalistic Border Idea with Perennials and Grasses

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Summer Borders, Fall Borders


Awash with colors and shapes from mid summer to fall, this naturalistic planting is really fascinating. It combines the brilliant reds, yellows and oranges of Achillea 'Terracotta' and 'Moonshine', Helenium 'Waldtraut', and Dahlia 'Bishop of Oxford'.

They are artfully interplanted with the cool blues of Agapanthus (Lily of the Nile) and Eryngium x zabelii 'Jos Eijking' (Sea Holly).

Not to forget the brilliant presence and intoxicating fragrance of Lilium 'Regale', a remarkable lily with glistening pure white trumpets adorned with golden throats and pinkish-purple streaks on the outside. On a still evening, nothing can match the sweet fragrance emanating from its abundant blossoms - up to 25 blossoms per stem for a spectacular long-lasting display.

Attractive to butterflies, hummingbirds and low maintenance, most plants are deer or rabbit resistant and are recipient of prestigious awards. Enjoy!
