An Explosive Mix!

Helenium autumnale (Sneezeweed) are famous for adding their rich colors to late summer borders. When mixed with the equally colorful, rose-lavender spikes of Stachys macrantha (Big Betony), they create a long-lasting spectacular mix that is not only a feast for the eyes but also deer resistant and fairly low maintenance!
 

Both plants are recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society. Enjoy!
