Container Combo with Purple, Silver and Deep Pink

This planting combination works best planted in a dark colored container to provide contrast with the Dichondra 'Silver Falls'. Strappy foliage of the deep burgundy cordyline and a pink heuchera are striking against the lighter blue hosta and silver nickel vine. The dwarf hydrangea provides summer into fall blooms. Hardiness rating of this combo is based on treating the silver nickel vine as an annual but the rest of this planting scheme can winter over in zones 8 and warmer, providing multiple years of enjoyment if winters remain mild. After a harsh winter, the cordyline may need to be replaced as well.
