With their unusual shapes and brilliant colors, Kniphofias (Red Hot Pokers) and Sea Hollies (Eryngium bourgatii) are wonderful herbaceous perennials to combine in beds and borders. They enhance seasonal interest and help create striking summer borders, the golden-orange flower spikes of Kniphofia contrasting beautifully with the extraordinarily eye-catching, blue flower heads of Eryngium.
Their blossoms are nicely complemented with the bright lemon-yellow umbels of Achillea 'Moonshine', a highly prized yarrow for its pleasantly aromatic, silver-green feathery foliage and its long-lasting blossoms. Amass these plants in bold swathes and enjoy weeks of color!
This perennial combination enjoys a long season of interest, is attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds, is deer and rabbit resistant, and drought tolerant.
