Perfect for dry and sandy soils, this luminous prairie style planting brilliantly associates the cheerful Echinacea paradoxa (Yellow Coneflower) and elegant Echinacea pallida (Pale Purple Coneflower) with the vertical scarlet spires of Penstemon barbatus 'Coccineus' (Beardtongue).
Contrast and textural interest are further provided by the blue flower spikes of Agastache 'Black Adder' (Giant Hyssop) and the striking clusters of small, egg-shaped flowerheads of Eryngium yuccifolium (Rattlesnake Master).
They are interplanted with the graceful Stipa tenuissima (Mexican Feather Grass) which creates movement as it sways in the breeze.
With a long season of interest, all plants are drought tolerant, deer resistant, low maintenance, excellent as cut flowers and real magnets for butterflies and bees! Enjoy!
