The Extravagant Border
Contrasting colours in pink, orange, red and purple. For full sun.
If you love colour this is the border for you! In May the magenta Cranesbill (Geranium psilostemon) blooms, along with purple Sage (Salvia nemerosa ‘Caradonna’) and Catmint (Nepeta faassinii ‘Walkers Low). Next you’ll have three months of orange and red Helen’s flower (Helenium) and Day lily (Hemerocallis) in combination with purple Phlox and red Knotweed (Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘Firetail’). The border is lightened with grasses and ends the blooming season with purple and red Asters.
If you opt for the bulb kit, the border will start to bloom in February/March with purple Crocuses. In April you’ll have white Narcissi and red, orange and purple Tulips. In July, the Irises and dark purple Alliums will bloom in combination with the perennials.
