Spring Combinations II

Delicate peach Iris
turns dramatic when paired with
bright blue perennial Salvia.

Effective combinations bring out the best in plants.

Here are a few
that caught my eye around town
earlier this spring....
Photo taken at Hershey Gardens
Blue Star (Amsonia hubrichtii) and yellow Iris
emphasize deep purple spikes of
Caradonna Meadow Sage (Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna'),


Evening Primrose (Oenothera speciosa) and Blue Flax (Linun lewisii) 
create cool waves of color.


This casual bank covering seems like
a good spot for the drought tolerant
Evening Primrose, which can spread aggressively.


Red poppies (Papaver) and
Blue Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus)
make a free and easy duo.






A pretty pink and blue palette:
Perennial Salvia (Salvia 'May Night' - middle right)
Catmint (Nepeta racemosa - bottom left)
Blue False Indigo (Baptisia australis - top right corner)
Coralbells (Heuchera - center)
Deep pink Knockout roses (top)
Pale pink carpet roses (middle left)

I think I am a little late to the party, but this is the blog that your comment linked to.

Love those colors.
