Autumn Moon Maple and Blue Hosta with a Garnish of Orange Geum

Easy to recreate in your garden, this planting combination has both fantastic foliage and cheery flowers. A classic color pairing of blue with yellow/orange—the big leaves of Hosta 'Blue Angel' contrast in both size and color with the smaller, golden-yellow foliage of the Autumn Moon maple, and are surrounded by tangerine blooms that bob atop tall stems over a long period from late spring into summer.
