Golden Summer

Coleus ‘Amora’ is the focal point of this planting and in addition to being pretty spectacular itself, the hybrid’s butter-coloured leaves with green edges form a wonderful background for the purplish-blue petunia and the coral-red blooms of the verbena.

Osteospermum adds a light, creamy colour to the mix and Lysimachia ‘Goldilocks’ tumbles over the edges, taking the golden tones to a different visual level.

Adding textural interest are the slender leaves of Carex ‘Toffee Twist’, a perennial hardy to zone 7.
