Foliage and Flower Plant Combo for Sun

This planting combination for full sun relies on contrasting foliage texture to deliver a solid and interesting foundation that looks good all year. A succession of blooms add to the appeal; in late winter, the hellebore offers up apple green blooms which are followed in summer by a bright and abundant display of white blooms on the rockrose and sprays of small and delicate lavender flowers on the finely textured Quicksilver hebe.
