Plant Combinations: For sunny garden (public and private), can be planted in small groups or mass plantings. For the front, edges, along patios and paths, bigger rock gardens, slopes and bigger containers. Best combined with smaller to medium sized perennials or groundcovers. Can be combined with plants that prefer somewhat drier conditions (and are drought tolerant) = from native choose shorter Agastache, shorter Amsonia, Antennaria, Asclepias tuberosa, smaller Baptisia, Campanula rotundifolia, Coreopsis, Cunila origanoides, Dalea, Eryngium juccifolium, Echinacea, Gaillardia, Gaura (shorter cultivars), shorter Liatris, Penstemons, Ruellia humilis, Stokesia, Verbena canadensis, Yucca, native grasses like Boutelloa gracilis or B. curtipendula, Koeleria cristata, Sporobolus heterolepis 'Tara' (or non-native Sesleria), medium-sized Panicum.

And non-native perennials like Achillea, summer blooming Allium, shorter Aquilegia, Armeria, shorter Aster, Calamintha, Campanula, Cerastium, Delosperma, Dianthus, Eryngium, Geranium (G. sanquineum, G. dalmaticum and x cantabrigiense, G. endresii, G. renardii), Gypsohila, Iris x barbata (=I. x germanica), Lavandula, Nepeta, Origanum, Paeonia, Perovskia, Platycodon, Satureja, other Salvia, Sedum, Sempervivum, low Stachys, Scabiosa columbaria, Thymus, lower Veronica,...

But it will go well with plants that do like more moisture too = Iris sibirica, Leucanthemum x superbum, Hemerocallis (daylily), Phlox paniculata hybrids or Phlox carolina hybrids.
