This desirable and long-lasting summer border is fairly easy to replicate in order to be enjoyed at home. Gloriously teaming up with the vertical purple-blue spikes of Salvia farinacea (Mealy-Cup Sage) are the long arching plumes of Pennisetum setaceum (Purple Fountain Grass) which sway gracefully in the summer breeze. Both plants are drought tolerant, deer resistant, require very little care and won prestigious awards. They may be grown as annual plants in cool winter areas. Enjoy!
