In August 2020 we contracted to refresh the landscape of our 30 year old house. Little did we know this small suburban yard would take many months to complete.
Today I planted the finishing touches to our walkway border with the following plants.
Dwarf Coreopolis (Nana) is a mounding perennial that will provide lovely blooms spring, summer and fall. Clump-forming and very weather tolerant plants with bright yellow-orange daisy-like flowers, they are perfect for borders or rock garden ground cover.
Salvia (Spring King Mini) is a very compact addition suitable for any border. Spikes of intense violet blue flowers top bright green foliage. This is a deciduous perennial that flowers spring and summer.
When well established these two plants will complement each other along the walkway, as well as the other landscaping.

I like the contrast of vertical sage and the daisy shape of the coreopsis. Hope it blooms as long as you expect. All my varieties of coreopsis have a much shorter bloom time, even if I keep them deadheaded. Happy growing.
