Burgundy and Gold Plant Combo for Afternoon Shade

A planting combination relying on vivid contrast in foliage color and texture. The bold yellow foliage of Little Honey oak leaf hydrangea is especially showy in combination with the finely textured burgundy foliage of the Shaina Japanese maple. The hardy fuchsia bloom color echoes the deep tones of the maple. The emerging foliage of the dwarf Canadian hemlock is light and bright and a striking feature of this slow-growing dwarf conifer.
