Fairly easy to replicate, this interesting prairie planting includes a few spectacular elements which thrive on neglect while providing striking color and contrast for weeks.

This plant combination includes the spiky, silvery-blue, egg-shaped flowerheads of Eryngium giganteum (Miss Willmott's Ghost), the fascinating steel blue, globe-shaped flowers of Echinops ritro (Globe Thistle) and the umbrella-shaped, pale pink flowers of Sedum 'Matrona' showing off atop sturdy ruby stems.

Fast growing with bumblebees and butterflies dancing in attendance, all these perennial plants are low maintenance, pest and disease-free, deer and drought tolerant, and make excellent cut flowers. As an added bonus, these strong performers are recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal horticultural Society. Enjoy!
