This perennial planting of herbaceous plants creates a colorful ornamental landscape in late spring or early summer. Towering above the delicate, claret flowers of Astrantia major (Mugwort) and the elegant clouds of feathery panicles of Deschampsia cespitosa (Tufted Hair Grass), spectacular tall Bearded Irises garner the attention.

Deer resistant, most plants make excellent cut flowers that can be pleasantly enjoyed at home!
