How can you not love Rudbeckia hirta and that bright sunny color. Lost the tag on this one.
As close as you can get to a black flower. Alcea from a big box.
Light pink and gray, one of my favorite color combos. Alcea rosea 'summer carnival' and Artemisia 'powis castle'.
Newly planted this past fall via bare root plants, Dalea purpurea-Purple Prairie Clover.
Dalea purpurea, Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Little Spires'-Russian Sage 'Little Spires', Stipa tenuissima-Mexican Feather Grass, and Alchillea millifolium 'Terra Cotta' in the background.
And I leave you with the late great giant mullien-Verbascum thapsus.
