This soft plant palette of pastel colors can be enjoyed from early to late summer and includes a few easy-to-grow perennial plants: the graceful flower plumes of Astilbes ‘Diamond’ and ‘Europa’; the fragrant, lavender-pink blossoms of Hemerocallis ‘Catherine Woodbury’; the attractive, dense mounds of large, satiny, variegated leaves of Hosta ‘Patriot’; and the profuse blooms of the exceptional and unsurpassed Geranium ‘Rozanne’.

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