This fetching combo was designed by Dean Engelmann in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Can you find the butterfly amongst this riot of jewel-like colors? The plants here include ‘Dipt in Wine’ coleus (Solenostemon scutellarioides ‘Dipt in Wine’, Zone 11) and ‘Fireworks’ fountain grass (Pennisetum setaceum ‘Fireworks’, Zones 9-10).

    Like this plant. How long will it last in the fall? I live in SC.

    That little guy is nicely hidden beneath the foliage in the lower left corner of the image. I had to enlarge the image to find it.

    The color combo is one of my faves, it's in a lot of my containers this year. 'Fireworks' is an awesome grass...beautifully planned.
