Love this plant! I got one and have another coming, it will be my redneck lupine! Great idea with the yellow TBI, I might do some in front or else some pretty yellow daylilies or a yellow coneflower. Have you seen the new one called Echinacea 'Cleopatra'? SHORTEST GOLDEN YELLOW! This 'City of Gold' is to die for, just gorgeous!

My daylilies started a couple of weeks ago and I do have some nice yellows, not as many as I would like!

The plant you see was planted in 2009.
This was May 25
Thumb of 2013-06-10/ge1836/5ed17b
The iris isnt even fully open.
Carolina Moonlight is just thining out blossoms so by the end of the week it will be making seeds.I count about 3 weeks from the 25th of May

I tried for that combo but never dreamed it would succeed. There is a lot of magic happening in the garden.

Most of my magic happened by accident. I did not have enough sense to consider bloom times when I planted stuff. So some of my echoes were a month behind, etc.

It's a work in progress. I am never done anyway so I will put it back on the 'to do list'. Soon as I finish one thing I dream up 8 more. LOL.
