About this EZ Scape™


    Seasonal Progression

    Keep pollinators buzzing through your garden with this combo of perennials. The Profusion Salvia will begin blooming early for a brilliant display in spring and early summer. Trimming back the Salvia after bloom will provide second and third flushes of flowers. The rest of the recipe will burst into flower through the heat of summer. These perennials will carry the garden with brightly colored blooms or large flower panicles. COLOR CODED® Coneflowers and Firefly Yarrow have attractive seedheads that can be left for fall and winter interest.
