Easy Care Mixed Border for Screening

A duo of evergreen plants, Ilex aquilfolium 'Angustifolia' and Mahonia 'Charity' form the evergreen backdrop of this combo and provide the all-season screen. The Mahonia has yellow winter time blooms that are a magnet for hummingbirds. The sequence of blooms continues with fragrant, crisply white blooms on the mock orange in spring, Geranium 'Rozanne' blooms in blue for months on end, and Hydrangea 'Limelight's panicles begin ivory, but take on a blush pink as they age.
