Picture Perfect Peppers and Canna Lilies

Each spring, the experts with Denver Parks and Recreation tend this raised planter in my neighborhood park. However, this is the first year for such an interesting combination of plants. Mixing yellow and red Canna lilies with ornamental peppers is a brilliant idea.

Right now the peppers are ripening and turning the same shades of yellow and red as the Canna flowers. Not only is it a great combination, but it shows how the gardening pros plan ahead so bloom times coincide. I wish I could I could that!

I’m going to keep this idea in mind for my garden next season. Using ornamental peppers with flowering plants is a beautiful approach for adding a blast of color to any dull spot in the garden.

What ideas do you have for using something like this in your landscape? Please share them here!
