Heirloom Garden Plan
Brilliant yellow basket-of-gold planted in front of bright avens makes a bold color combination. Both enjoy similar soil conditions.Iris
The upright sword-shape foliage of Siberian iris provides a good foil for the basal scalloped leaves of avens. Strong blue irises play off well against strong yellow or orange avens.Calliopsis
Brilliant yellow coreopsis echoes or complements the bright hues of avens over a long bloom time. Several fine cultivars are available.
