Foliage Combo in Pink and Blue for Woodland

This trio of perennials is selected for textural contrast and its long season of interest in the garden. The bold, blue foliage of Hosta 'Halcyon' is countered by fine silver-blue fronds of the eared lady fern (Athyrium otophorum). Pink tones of the Heuchera echo the veins of color running through the fern. This three-season combo looks great from spring to fall.
