Mixed Bed in Warm Tones Featuring Coppertina Ninebark, Coneflower and Grass

The copper tone foliage of the ninebark and the central eye of Echinacea 'Sunrise' offer a pleasing color harmony when the coneflower is blooms over a long season from summer into fall. This planting combination really shines from midsummer onward, when all members of the trio are in fine form. The frothy blooms of the dwarf fountain grass introduce gentle swaying movement when the ivory panicles catch the breeze and they also look wonderful when backlit.
