Wow! Such a vibrant plant combination to cheer you up for weeks in late spring - early summer! This sparkling mix of contrasting perennials, in terms of color and flower shapes, includes the elegant vertical lines of Lupinus 'Masterpiece' (Lupine) and Verbascum 'Southern Charm' (Mullein), the incredibly showy Camassia 'Blue Heaven' (Camass), the glowing Geum 'Prinses Juliana' (Avens) and the particularly beautiful violet-blue blooms of Aquilegia vulgaris var. stellata 'Blue Barlow' (Columbine).

Easy to replicate and low maintenance. Most plants are deer and rabbit resistant!
