A Superb Fall Trio

Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Fall Borders


Radiating in the fall garden with their erect golden spikes, Red Hot Pokers (Kniphofia) offer a soft and warm contrast to the purple clouds of Tall Verbena (Verbena bonariensis) and the profuse sky blue Aromatic Aster (Symphyotrichum oblongifolium). Drought tolerant, this combination is fairly easy to re-create. A great way of coloring your garden in fall!

A perfect idea for sandy soils!
