Herbaceous border of sage, hosta, hemerocallis and

Whether or not you like purple and yellow to go together, admit it: this looks pretty.

In garden arrangements it is often the shape of the plants and how they look together in groups are more important than the colour of their flowers. As far as colour goes, there is some flexibility in each garden plan.

Here, you can replace a yellow daylily with purple, orange or red. Geraniums (cranesbills) also come in white and blue. Sage (in this case salvia nemerosa) is available in violet, pink and white shades.
