COLOR-MAD CANTINA GARDEN COMBOS

Thought I'd share some of my favorite plant combos, discovered on this morning's stroll through the Cantina Garden:


Love, love, love the way this magenta-colored yarrow looks against my deer-proof coleus substitute, perilla "Magilla".


Those two, along with these streaky pink petunias, make a heck of a trio, don't you think?

While we're on the subject of pink, check out this gomphrena/lantana combo.


The lantana is just beginning to bloom but, once it gets going, those big clusters of tiny pink and yellow blooms will look fantastic with these hot pink pom poms tipped in yellow!


My giant coral-colored metal pot has held something different almost every summer. This year it holds those cute daisy-like flowers which I think were some type of gazania, and this amazing "Haight Ashbury" hibiscus which, unlike most other hibiscus, is grown more for it's fabulous foliage than its blooms!


Remind you of anything?

Last, but not least, is this sunny little pot on the front porch, containing calibrachoa and some type of lime green sedum -- the perfect combo to go with this beautiful glass globe Hubby gave me.


So that's what's goin' on in my garden this June. What about yours?
