My last spring plant combination includes a tropical twist of bright, warm colors. Just as the first two, I have my consistent ajuga, plus included two additional tasty plants in this simple arrangement.
This planting is for full sun in zone 5. The plants in this design include:
Thymus x citriodorus ‘variegata’ / Variegated Lemon Thyme
Kniphofia ‘Mango Popsicle’ / Dwarf Poker
What I like most about this combination:
- Has a tropical feel, if you're needing that in the Midwest U.S.
- The contrast of leaf textures...coarse ajuga leaves to the medium kniphofia leaves to the fine thymus leaves.
- The low groundcovers setting a nice base for the strong upright form of the kniphofia.
- A unique warm color combination of the oranges and yellows to the mahogany.
