Bands of Color Summer Blooms with Skirt of Golden Foliage

Golden billowing mounds of Japanese forest grass are a footlight for the plush purple plumes of the Purperkerze Astible in summer. The Hydrangea 'Limelight' is just beginning its bloom period and will display a pleasing progression of color as apple green panicles take on blush tones as they age. The spent blooms of the astilbe remain architecturally interesting well into fall if the dried seed heads are left in place.
