Looking great,Chris..I also have a few of those Sedums in my border...just starting to colour up now..and the geranium too..What is the blue one overhanging the path please? it all looks so pretty,and very full..I have so many gaps at the front this year..all burnt off when it was hot,and we were away :o( Your lovely red Rose sets it all off nicely :o)

It is a perennial and I do not know its name but I really like it. I shall put it on as a question to find out.

A perfect summer border;0)

Bloomer it is called Perovskia. It is a pretty plant. There are a number of varieties - take a look at Google images.
Thanks for your kind comments - everything fights for a place in our garden so it does get a bit higgledy piggledy to be honest!

That's my idea of the perfect border!
I hope you don't mind but I need to save this to my favourites - I don't want to use the word copy, inspirational sounds better!

Made my day Scottish to actually be in a 'favs!'

Very nice border mix, do you give your sedum the chelsea chop to get it so nice and bushy, I thought I`d lost my perovskia (russian sage) but found it today almost choked to death by the berberis in the bottom border.

Our perovskia is a bit squashed too - as are many plants in our garden! I really want to get a sidalcea (pale pink and spiky) but seem to have missed my chance this year.
