Sunny clay plant combination
Open border plan
This combination will look its best from mid summer to late autumn. The red hot cinquefoil is toned down slightly by the sneezeweedand black-eyed susan, but the result is still toasty.
Planting tips: Lift and divide large clumps in autumn or spring, and apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plants in spring. The taller plants will need to be supported with ring stakes or brushwood in spring.
You will need a sunny bed measuring 2m x 1.25m.
