Sweeps of purple stachys, red bee balm, white shasta daisy, yellow black-eyed susan and green sedum are tidy yet casual.
Large swaths of a few plants provide impact. The red flowers of the bee balm are in full bloom now. The purple coneflower will come along later in the season.
Lush front entry plantings include the red wax leaf begonia, a bed of small round boxwood shrubs surrounded by the dark leaves of the coral bells. The light lift of the purple catmint and vinca groundcover.
