Contrasting Texture and Harmonious Yellow Foliage Color

This plant combo, suitable for a part sun garden situation is reliant on strong textural contrast and a harmonious color scheme; the large, glossy leaves of Fatsia japonica Camouflage™ are pleasing in contrast to the fine golden foliage of Lonicera nitida 'Twiggy'. Both shrubs are evergreen and would look great year-round in a container or would work as a foundation to build upon in a mixed bed. Garden designer, Darcy Daniels of Bloomtown Gardens in Portland, Oregon talks about this plant combo in this video.
