This is one of my absolute favorite combos from NYC’s Central Park Conservatory Garden. I love how the flowers of the fennel (hmmm. Is it fennel? Dill? You tell me…) wave in the breeze and act as a veil to the ‘Pretoria’ canna (USDA Hardiness Zones 8-11). The Salvia vanhouttei (Zones 9-11) adds a bit of unusual color–sort of a dark, dusky plum.
