This simple, but effective foliage duo for shade looks great from spring to frost. The light color of the variegated foliage of Painter's Palette fleece flower brightens a shady garden spot and contrasts in texture and color with the big, bold foliage of Hosta 'Blue Angel'. Both of the perennials in this easy-to-grow planting combination are herbaceous; meaning that they die back to the ground in winter, so to improve the all-season appeal of this combo, you might want to pair these two with one or more plants with evergreen foliage.
