I have been putting garden plant combinations together for 25 years. I like to say I come from the school of “trowel and error” learning a lot along the way. Here is one of my favorite early spring to early summer perennial combination for a sunny to part shaded spot. Since we get a ton of questions on this subject, we thought we’d share our gardening ideas with you as frequently as we can on our blog.
This spring-early summer perennial combination includes electrifying blue spikes of Salvia May Night with fragrant pink flowering Dianthus Firewitch and early spring flowering, vanilla scented Viola Etain.
Here are a few other ideas:
Salvia with Pink Knock Out Roses
Dianthus with blue foliage Festuca
Violas at a base of your favorite shrub
What are some of your favorite spring-summer plant combinations?
