Foliage Color and Texture with Red Blooming Accent

This planting combination relies on contrasting foliage color, texture, and varied plant forms to deliver interest over a long season from spring to fall. In summer, the day lily blooms of deep burgundy with a yellow eye relay a color echo that is answered by the hosta and cordyline. The soft, silvery-blue foliage of the dwarf conifer is a perfect pair to the bold, lance-shaped,deep burgundy foliage of the Festival Burgundy Cordyline. Cordyline x 'JURed' requires winter protection in the colder parts of its hardiness range.
