Polkadots and Moombeams

In previous years, I pulled all but the purplest periwinkles. The past 2 years, a few pale pinks sneaked in and I left them. Now we’re back to polkadot colors when reseeders start to bloom.

‘Moonbeam’ coreopsis is the palest yellow, just right with ‘Sunny Knockout’ roses, which have a tendency to fade to near white, and ‘Brocaded Gown’ daylilies in the palest yellow-green.

    Love the Sunny Knockout. I am considering buying one next year. This is the first year my periwinkles have reseeded, but they havent bloomed yet…so no idea what color. Yours are pretty.

    Those Periwinkles reseed themselves throughout my garden too. Moonbeam Coreopsis looks great mingling with the Sunny Knockouts.
