A Stunning Perennial Garden

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Summer Borders


This lovely hillside perennial garden is a feast for the eyes with its harmonious mix of textures and colors. Blending naturally with the surrounding landscape and fairly easy to replicate, the plant palette includes Sage 'Mainacht' or 'May Night' (Salvia x sylvestris), Lamb's Ears (Stachys byzantina), Showy Stonecrop 'Herbstfreude' or 'Autumn Joy' (Sedum), Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla mollis), Russian sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia), Common Chives (Allium schoenoprasum) and Siberian Iris 'Caesar's Brother' (Iris sibirica).

Brilliantly created by Matthew Cunningham Landscape Design, this garden is a delight from spring to fall.

Low maintenance and full of charm, most plants won prestigious awards and are easy to grow. They will attract the energy of butterflies and hummingbirds while most of them will be ignored by deer. Enjoy!
