A Perfect Summer Border with Tiger Lilies, Echinacea and Sea Holly

Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Summer Borders


Who can resist a border overflowing with colorful perennial flowers? Fairly easy to replicate, this festive border includes a few spectacular elements which provide striking color and contrast to the perennial border: showy tall-growing Tiger Lilies (Lilium tigrinum) with their brilliant orange petals delicately spotted and flecked with black and purple; the spiky-leafed, silvery-blue Sea Holly (Eryngium) and the fresh-looking pink Echinacea purpurea (Purple Coneflower).

Low maintenance, pest and disease-free, deer tolerant, all these plants also make excellent cut flowers!
