Late Summer Splash Perennial Flower Pack
The Late Summer Splash collection begins flowering as early as May but is so called because of the vivid contrast of Achillea Terracotta and Aster Little carlow later in the year. The season begins in May with violet Verbascum which will continue flowering up to August. The tall violet spires make a pretty contrast with the softer colours and shape of Stipa ponytails.
June sees the appearance of darker purple Salvia memorosa at the back which is quickly joined by Achillea Terracotta in July and Aster Little carlow in August when they all bloom together. This is a fun plan with a wild look of different heights, colours and textures.
