Colorful Foliage Anchors This Plant Combination

Choosing plants based on their overall shape as well as the color and texture of their foliage is a sure-fire way to create planting combinations with staying power.

This combination will look great for months on end and would be perfect for adding curb appeal to a front yard garden or courtyard.

An underlying thread of orange-red knits the flowers and foliage together. And the classic color pairing of blue and yellow foliage on the evergreen, anchoring shrubs is handsome year-round.

From spring into summer, Geum 'Sangria' produces tall flowers on slender stems. Deadhead to promote re-bloom. Choisya t. 'Sundance' provide fragrance and fresh white flowers.
