The globe thistle, for example, is a versatile flower when it comes to placement. While smaller types form a lovely bouquet, the taller of the species are ideal as background plants and at the edges of gardens. Like an antique frame around a modern painting, these tall perennials define the borders of your garden, and bring out the color and breadth of your other flowers.

The perennials on this page come in a variety of colors, and require varying degrees of exposure to the sun. Consider how much sky is available in your garden, and then select the flowers that will create a tapestry in your yard.
