The fashionable color combo around the Senate building at Luxembourg Gardens is red and purple. This is another favorite garden in Paris where I've never seen the same combinations repeated on my many visits over the years.

Familiar flowers combined for a unique design.
Castor bean, dahlias, petunias and geraniums dominate.

I like the use of purple fountain grass and purple spires of salvia.

I'm inspired by the spires of salvia. Love this look.

On a smaller scale, this would look great in a cottage garden.
The color coordination of my scarf with
the garden was purely coincidental.
