A Striking Summer Border with Tiger Lilies and Lobelia

Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Summer Borders, Fall Borders


Fairly easy to replicate and requiring low care, this ravishing plant combination is a welcome presence in the late summer garden and you will find yourself admiring its spectacular blooms again and again. It includes 2 breathtaking beauties: the showy Lilium lancifolium 'Splendens' (Tiger Lily) with its profusion of brilliant orange flowers with gracefully recurved tepals, and the rich violet flower spikes of Lobelia x gerardii 'Vedrariensis' (Lobelia). 

Pest and disease-free, deer tolerant, both these plants also make excellent cut flowers!
