Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Summer Borders, Fall Borders


This ravishing mixed border brings a cheerful splash of color in the late summer and fall garden. Combine the golden blossoms of Goldenrod (Solidago rugosa) and glowing Brown-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia triloba) with clouds of rich purple New England Aster (Aster novae-angliae) and you will brilliantly celebrate the coming of fall.

These late flowering perennials are rich in nectar and will bring a wonderful display of butterflies into the garden. All plants are deer resistant and drought tolerant.

Enjoy a spectacular color show, which will enlighten your garden for weeks!
