Even in spring, crape myrtle Zuni manages to steal the show with its creamy smooth bark; the warm tones of Pieris japonica 'Little Heath' and Heucheralla 'Sweet Tea' are an extension of the color scheme. The fun pop of color is Bergenia 'Magic Giant' which is also grown for its large, glossy foliage which makes a nice textural pairing with the delicate maidenhair fern, Adiantum venustum.
