Proven Garden Plant Combinations for Early Spring-Early Summer

L-R Salvia May Night, Dianthus Firewitch, Viola Etain

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?
