Open border plan
Vibrant shades are attention-grabbers. They should be used if you love bright colours, or want an impactful border that can be seen from a long way off. In this border, citrus shades are made even more vivacious with a brush of velvet-purple. The structural elements work well too, with a pleasing mix of vertical spires and horizontal flowerheads.
Planting tip: Prepare the bed well by digging in lots of composted organic matter before you plant. For best results it is essential that the plants are kept well watered for the first year, particularly during warmer weather. A newly planted border of herbaceous perennials can look a bit sparse until the plants start to fill out. You can overcome this by adding temporary seasonal bedding to add extra colour and interest during the first couple of seasons.
Designed to fill a sunny bed measuring 3m x 1.5m wide.
