Blue and Burgundy Plant Combo for Part Sun

Viburnum davidii and Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Barry's Silver' are the main evergreen players in this composition and their varying shapes and textures provide all-season structure and appeal. Crisp white blooms of the primula are followed by the ever-evolving blooms of Hydrangea 'Preziosa' and provide bloom color over a long season. Complimentary foliage of the hosta and fern provide three-season interest.
