Only 3 plants comprise this naturalistic combination. Designed for late summer interest and color and extending its brilliant colors well into fall, this plant palette can be easily replicated in many sunny garden situations.
An unforgettable spectacle in the fall!
The charm and appeal of this prairie planting comes from the glowing beauty of its flowers and from the grace of its ornamental grasses. Planted in masses and drifts of color, rudbeckia, crocosmia, helenium, echinacea, eryngium create drama and impact. Blooming in succession over a long season, they are interplanted with stipa and calamagrostis for a naturalistic meadow effect. These grasses will provide a great show in fall after the flowers are long gone.
This ravishing mixed border brings a cheerful splash of color in the late summer and fall garden. Combine the golden blossoms of Goldenrod (Solidago rugosa) and glowing Brown-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia triloba) with clouds of rich purple New England Aster (Aster novae-angliae) and you will brilliantly celebrate the coming of fall.
