Peony and Iris border: Neighbors down the street have an old stone wall out by the road. A border of pink peonies and various shades of purple and lilac irises grows in front of it. What a glorious sight it is each year.
Combining Plants : Give your garden a cohesive look by using the same color combinations — with different plants — in other parts of the garden. Mixtures of salvias, garden phlox and grasses create this variation on the purple, pink and chartreuse theme. Successful garden beds depend on marrying plants that have similar needs for light and water.
