The color magenta, along with shades of pink and red, is prominent in many annual varieties, but you can find pops of color in many perennials, too.
In perennials, magenta is found more as a highlight, stem, or even underlying leaf color.
In this article, we will show you some examples of perennials that would greatly complement your magenta-colored annuals, or that would work on their own to bring a pop of color to your yard or garden.
Echinacea purpurea PowWow Wild Berry (Coneflower)
This perennial flower is a statement piece all on its own, with bright pink petals and an orange center.
Heuchera Coral Bells in Black Pearl
As we mentioned in our Perennials for Annuals article, the ‘Black Pearl’ variety of Heuchera coral bells is a dark black shade, but it has subtle spots of magenta.
Daylily ‘Rock Solid’
This daylily has more than one color to brighten up your Mid-Michigan yard or garden.
“Magenta” is even in the name of this bright perennial. The colorful flowers can bring cheer to your yard when they bloom.
Both ‘Double Play’ and ‘Double Play Gold’ varieties of spirea have light purple flowers.
Hibiscus ‘All Eyes on Me’
With light pink petals and a bright pink center, there’s a reason all eyes will be on this colorful hibiscus flower. Hibiscus flowers can grow up to 8 inches across and attract pollinators such as bees and hummingbirds.
Several varieties of hydrangeas can be found in shades of pink, purple, or magenta, including ‘City Line Paris,’ ‘Invincibelle Spirit,’ and ‘Fire Light,’ shown above.
