Foliage Combo for Shade Featuring Podophyllum

A simple and sophisticated planting scheme in restful shades of green that emphasizes contrasts in foliage texture. This plant combo is the epitome of easy-care; simply cut back the herbaceous foliage when it dies back in the fall. One caveat, be careful to pick a site where it will not get afternoon sun; a blast of hot sun will burn the large leaves of the Podophyllum and mar the scene for the rest of the season.
