I love the great color combinations working here in the garden. Could you please tell me the name of the pretty purple blooming plant in the background in this photo?

1dogma: that plant is Agastache ' Blue Fortune'. It a staple plant for us and really the only Agastache we've had great success with in the midatlantic.

Well that's Eupatorium 'Gateway'. Another great plant. This garden was planted next to a creek and large preserve where tons of weed seed blow into the planting and these plants are extremely effective at keeping out the weeds. Go ahead and check out the Aster tartaricus 'Jindai' ( seen at right) while you'rt at it.
