Orange Pop Perennial Flower Pack
The Orange Pop perennial flower pack contains a mix of flowering plants and grasses to create a natural 'prairie' style look with interest throughout the season. The pretty Deschampsia and Stipa grasses provide texture and interest as soon as the soil warms in March and are followed in late May/early June by the vivivd orange of Helenium Moerheim beauty surrounded by the characteristic icy white pom poms of Echinops Arctic glow.
As the season moves on the stunning lilac/purple of Aster Little carlow comes into play and contrasts beautifully with the dusty taupe tones of Deschampsia Goldtau, the white Echinops remain adding drama with their upright, architectural shapes. The seed heads of Echinpos should be left in place for winter to provide habitat for overwintering insects with the added bonus that they look magical with a dusting of frost.
