Black and White Foliage Combo for Shade

This simple and elegant foliage vignette of Brunnera 'Looking Glass', black mondo grass, and the white flowering Cardamine trifolia is a great ground-covering plant trio to build upon. The addition of an evergreen conifer with light silvery-blue foliage and some summertime blooms would round out this scene perfectly.
