This jaw dropping combination features dazzling orange Dwarf Asiatic Lilies, which practically ignite when the sun shines on them, graceful and shimmering lavender-blue Catmint 'Walker's Low' (Nepeta racemosa), as well as stunning Mexican Feather Grass (Nassella tenuissima or Stipa tenuissima), delicately undulating in the summer breeze. Blooming from mid spring to early summer, this low care ensemble is easy to replicate.
