Plant Combinations

As you can see, we don't do colour schemes in our gardens. The more colour the better. You won't find colour schemes in nature anyway. 
The plants just do there own thing.

Now and again, and not always on purpose, a group of flowers make a nice picture.

Here are a few.

Lilium Regale and Veronica longifolia                                 Phlox paniculata 'Pink Eye Flame', Sidalcea 'Rose Queen', Monarda 'Prairenacht'

Rudbeckia lacinata'Goldsturm ' and Stokesia laevis 'Blue Star'                 Clematis 'Multi Blue' and Clematis texensis 'Gravetye Beauty'

Echinacea purpurea 'White Swan' and I think Echinacea purpurea 'Ruby Giant'

Phlox paniculata 'Pink Eye Flame' and ' ' Monarda 'Prairenacht',             Gypsophilia 'White Festival' and a Dahlia we don't know the name of. 

Salvia sylvestris 'Bluehill' and Penstemon 'Firebird'

Campanula persicifolia 'Blue Bloomers' and Trollius europaeus             Geranium pratense 'Mrs Kendall Clarke' and Pimpinella major 'Rosea'

Phlox paniculata 'Velvet Flame ' and a single Leucanthemum                         Astrantia major and Crocosmia


Lilium 'Arena ' and Rudbeckia lacinata 'Goldsturm'                                        Echinacea 'Tomato Soup' and Echinacea purpurea

Hibiscus rosa sinensis. And no I have not played with the colour.              Delphinium grandiflora 'Blue Butterfly', Campanula glomerata 'Alba'
Most of the flowers are red, some come out as bicolour.                                And a dwarf Lupin, with Achillea 'Sunbeam' in the background.

Phlox paniculata 'Starfire ' and Veronica longifolia
