Blue Lace Delphinium and Other Pretty faces.

I love this flower. The purple/blue combination on Blue Lace almost seems photoshopped,it's so perfect.

Pacific Moon Daylily against Hosta "Guacamole"

Kniphofia and Allium "Giganteum" I love this combination

And Triple Hot Papaya Echinacea. I can't believe how well this one is doing!

All gorgeous. I simply love delphs that one is stunning! I remember when those new echinacea came out and I wondered about them. How striking and I have just the place.

Great photography, too. :)

Thanks, everyone for looking :) I also love delphiniums and they do pretty well for me, so I'll most likely try a few more kinds.
The Hot Papaya overwintered very well for me in a large container. I'm waiting to see if one that has buds is "Coral Reef" or "Milkshake ". I really liked Coral Reef. :)

You surely have mastered the art of combining shapes and contrasting colors. So gorgeous. That delf and the hydrangea combo is masterful.

So pretty. I have planted delphiniums, but not very successfully. Yours inspires me to try again! All your combos are lovely.

Thanks so much for looking ;)
Hi, Kay *waves* I have two other coneflowers that survived the winter and will soon color, so can't wait to see which they are!

girlgroupgirl, thanks so much. I was almost twinkling with happiness at your comment, because I tend to crush my little artistic ego some years thinking I have a brilliant plan, and then throwing together some hideous combinations. Lol. This year I just tossed cosmos into lots and lots of container edges and that looks great, too.

I love the red hot poker and alliums. How are your alliums still in bloom? Mine faded months ago....

Ongreenthumb, mine faded last week, maybe because we had a much cooler spring this year?
