Foliage-driven Plant Combo in Burgundy, Blue and Yellow

A variety of foliage color, texture, and plant forms provide year-round interest in this easy care, foliage-driven planting combination for mild climates. In early spring, the evergreen groundcover Veronica 'Georgia Blue' forms a carpet of blue flowers, shortly thereafter the fringe flower will be covered in clusters of vivid magenta blooms. Evergreen foliage in burgundy, yellow and a pink variegation provide structure and a colorful all-season display. The bold toothy foliage of the honey bush is semi-evergreen and in mild winter can look good all year, but the plant can be tidied and kept compact by cutting back in spring as new growth emerges at the base.
