Burgundy, Blue and Yellow Foliage Combo for Part Shade

This planting combination for part sun is in its first year in this garden; over time it will knit together to create a lush foliage tapestry featuring a pleasing range in texture and color and varied plant forms. The bright new growth of the plum yew is echoed by the ground-covering Japanese sweet flag and the bold, blue foliage of the hosta is a pleasing contrast in color and texture to the dark foliage of the barberry and heuchera. This plant combo looks great from spring to frost with minimal care.
