The early summer blooming perennials are full in their pots, showing color and ready to brighten up your perennial gardens. I love to plant gardens with color schemes: echoing colors with different flowers, leaf forms, sizes and shapes.

Here are some suggestions of pink and purple perennials in bloom now with similar, harmonizing color tones to add to an established garden or a new garden in the making.

Purples and pinks – top left c. clockwise: Achillea ‘Oertell’s Rose’, Liatris ‘Kobold’, Dianthus ‘Silver Star’, Dianthus ‘Vampire’, Armeria ‘Splendens’, Lupinus ‘Gallery Blue’ and Salvia ‘Purple Rain’ in the center.
