A selection of different plant pairings in my garden that I wanted to share. I love putting these types of combos together. It does not always turn out well, but when it does, it's great.

Delphinium 'Blue Fountains' and Rudbeckia 'Goldstrum'

Nepeta x faassenii 'Select Blue' and Stachys byzantina

Dwarf Dahlias and Fall Asters

Fall Asters and Phegelius 'Moonraker'

Oriental Lillies 'LaReve' and Lychnis coronaria

Delphinium 'Pacific Giant' and Crocosmia 'Lucifer'

Heuchera 'Citronella' and New Guinea Impatiens

The pairings are selected on colour and texture, height and size, form and growing conditions.


Layanee said...

Bob: All beautiful and will give me great ideas for next year. Thanks!

Shady Gardener said...

Is Stachys byzantina "lambs ear?"

Your combinations are beautiful! I've just found your blog.

I posted a question on your entry about Tigridia.


Dirty Fingernails said...

I am a HUGE fan of pairings.. My fav. is the blues, reds and whites.. Although oranges and blues come in second. What is your most favorite pairing.

Connie said...

Beautiful combos...that last one with the Heuchera and N.G.Impatiens really sizzles!

Andrea's Garden said...

Delphinum is my favorites, but the slugs love it, too. I have only one that survived here, so I switched to Digitalis. I love that combination though!
Oh, yes, the bulbs are sparaxis. They were freebies. Wrote a little more about my gardening approach in my response to you in my blog. My heuchera sits next to catnip right now, but will be moved to hostas in the shade in the fall.

Bob said...

Layanee, thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend. BOB

Shady gardener, Yes it's lambs ear, A dwarf hybrid that only gets 15" when in bloom. I'll answer your question on tigridia in that post.
All the best, BOB

Dirty Fingernails, I like orange and blues also, it can really pop in a landscape. But my favourite are anagelous combinations. Years back I taught colour theory and was always draw to these combos.
Thanks for the question. Happy gardening, BOB

Connie, I was pleased how that pairing turned out. As you can see by some of my past posts, I really Use foliage as an important part of design. Especially lime green coloured leaves.
All the best to you Connie, BOB

Kylee said...

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
but I had to tell someone!
