Border, Container, Firescaping/Fire Wise, Mass Planting, Very Wet Areas. This old-fashion gem is wonderful in a mixed perennial border or country container planting. When other perennials have peaked, Farmington will still be going strong, adding color to your fall garden. Great as a cut flower.
Plant with other old fashioned favorites like Roses, Peonies, Coneflowers, and Hollyhock. Mix with other fall blooming varieties for a late show of color in your garden.
