Home Sweet Hummelo: Sesleria autumnalis and Stachys monnieri 'Hummelo'
I've grown all of these plants except Monarda bradburiana, and love them all for their consistent performance, drought tolerance, and long season of color. I plan to plant the Monarda, which is native, in my front yard no-water garden.
Tell me, what are some of your favorite plant combos?
