That is a very vibrant combination. I love it. What are the purple flowers?

The orange and yellow flowers are your standard African Marigold. The purple are a variety of (unidentified) astilbe that were already in the yard when I moved in.

This astilbe is a really wonderful plant -- nothing eats it, it doesn't get any diseases, it's drought tolerant in shade and good soil, it spreads modestly by runners and makes for a nice naturalized look, and its blooms last longer than any other type of astilbe I own (any other plant, period -- except my Zinnia pumila). I'll be collecting seed this Fall, in case anyone's interested. ;-)

Thanks for the compliments!

Wow! Knocks my socks off! Really beautiful. I wish my astilbe looked as good. I have almost lost mine to the drought this summer.

No wrong color combo in the flower world, in my book. Lovely!

One year Burpee came out with zinnias in this color combination too. Grew them and they were beautiful. Like your flower combination!
