Purple and white summer border

Purple flowers of cranesbill and blue foliage of hosta: looking good in semi-shade.

Here is a planting idea for a summer border. You will probably have to replace a white stachys with a more common lilac- or purple-flowering kind or search for the white-flowering varieties such as stachys officinalis 'Wisley White' or 'Alba'. Cranesbills and spiderworts are available in a varieties of colours from white to violet. 

Hosta adds exotic touch with its striking foliage, and can be found in many shades of green.
