My next spring plant combination has such a sweet, cottage feel to it. Again, I've included another ajuga, was inspired by tasty sweets, and kept it simple with just three plants.
This planting is for full sun in zones 4 and 5. The plants in this design include:
What I like most about this combination:
- The striking color contrast between the light green, almost white ajuga with the veronica's dark foliage and vibrant blue flowers.
- The contrast of leaf textures...coarse ajuga leaves to the finer veronica leaves to the even finer coreopsis leaves.
- The low groundcovers setting a nice base for the strong upright form of the coreopsis.
- The quaint feel of the soft yellow, daisy-like coreopsis flowers against the vibrant blue veronica flowers. Ugh, I want to plant this in my garden right now!
