Foliage-driven Garden with Burgundy, Gold, and Blue

Foliage carries the day in this low-maintenance plant combination. Since its juju comes primarily from the color and texture of its foliage and the overall shape and form of the plants, frequent and fussy care is not required. Though tolerant of some shade, plenty of sun and regular water will keep it looking its best. However, this combo wouldn't be happy receiving reflected heat or subjected to blistering afternoon sun.
