Fresh, growing flowers are beautiful no matter the case – but for all those that like to plan and ponder – we’ve decided to round up 10 easy and pretty flower combination ideas for your landscaping needs! Take a look!

Sometimes confused by one another, petunias and pansies are easy-to-care-for, whimsical flowers that come in a variety of colors. We love their short, but lush nature and love their pairing for an easy way to line the walkway to the front door.

2. Tulips & Gerber Daisies.

Another two flowers that come in a variety of colors, these two petals have quite a dissimilar look. The chic, soft tulip and the vibrant, disheveled daisy pair well together because of their taller appearance and thick stalk, making for a more artistic combination.

3. Dahlias & Alium.

Alium with its purple variations and dahlias coming in different, beautiful hues, these flowers have a soft, “puffy” look that blends well together in the garden. Although, watch how they’re planted as dahlias are much shorter than alium when full grown.

4. Lavender & Lillies.

Lavender comes in an arrangement of lavender shades while lillies can be seen in bright pinks to tiger variations. But we love the contrast of pairing the two together in the garden, since they aren’t similar in nature, it becomes a fun, textural experience.

5. Aster & Goldenrod.

Yellows and purples will always find a home together as a stylish, power color duo. Then when you surround a tuft of aster with a swarm of goldenrod you’ll get something quite magical.

6. Peonies & Garden Roses.

Pick out the colors of your choice and then have fun. The lush nature of peonies paired with the most sophisticated roses will make for a vibrant and youthful addition to your garden. But then again, the voluminous garden rose pairs well with the plushness of the peony!

7. Hollyhocks & Bleeding Hearts.
