A Prairie Planting Idea with Easy Care Annuals and Perennials

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


This soft, naturalistic planting is designed to inspire gardeners to support local wildlife. Incorporating wildlife friendly areas into our gardens is very important. Bees, bugs and butterflies all help in the pollination process, as well creating balanced ecosystems. This luminous prairie style planting associates a wonderful mix of easy care annuals, perennials and ornamental grasses for a long-lasting summer display.

Most plants have won prestigious awards and are drought tolerant. Enjoy!
