An Eye-Catching Border Idea with colorful Allium and Euphorbia

Spring Combination Ideas, Bulb Combinations, Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Spring Borders, Summer Borders, Fall Borders


Create long-lasting, pleasing contrasts in your garden. Combine the showy, bright greenish-yellow flowers of Euphorbia palustris (Marsh Spurge) with the attractive, burnt orange flowers and red-tinged leaves of Euphorbia griffithii 'Fern Cottage' (Spurge). Complement these perennial plants with the striking and architectural blossoms of Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation' (Ornamental Onion) and enjoy their color splash and fascinating display for weeks. In the fall, the foliage of both Euphorbias warms up to attractive shades of yellow or orange, therefore extending the season of interest of this plant combination.

Fairly easy to re-create, deer and rabbit resistant and low maintenance!
