Here is my current favorite combination. It's Echinacea 'Pow Wow Wild Berry' and Agastache 'Golden Jubilee.' They look like they were meant to be together.

Thanks, Susan! That Agastache is really golden this year. Last year it had a little more green to it. I hope it stays this way!

I've noticed you can pick through the Pow Wows and find some like this easily with the stronger color. There are variations in color, but you can find some that are very intense. I didn't color correct, crop, or anything either. That is really the color of the Pow Wow Wild Berry. What an amazing plant!

That is a very good idea! It would look good if you put Agastache 'Golden Jubilee' in the back with 'Pow Wow Wild Berry' in the middle and the Hosta in the front. In front of the Hosta put the Delosperma cooperi.

I don't think I have Golden Jubilee, but the rest is do-able. I was going to substitute the Golden Jubilee with a tall golden Hosta. Lovey dubby The Ice plant would be happy there also.
I wish I had 5 more of these pretty Coneflowers, because they are short and you can do a lot more with them. Thumbs up
