Cool Combo of Silver and Magenta

A shade tolerant plant combo in cool tones contrasting vivid magenta foliage and flower against light and bright silver to white foliage. This combo will do best with morning sun and afternoon shade. This a good vignette for creating an all-season scene in a tight spot. Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Snow' is a slow growing dwarf conifer that will remain compact so is a good choice for providing evergreen structure without outgrowing its welcome.
