Foliage Vignette for Woodland in Shades of Green and Gold

This lush foliage combo in shades of green, illuminated by golden foliage and further brightened with a splash of white variegation is reliant on varied texture and form, and lends a serene and sophisticated feel to this woodland garden scene. The backdrop of the evergreen duo of clumping bamboo and variegated Japanese aralia make this planting combination suitable for screening or dividing space. In spring, Veronica 'Georgia Blue' provides a spot of color; its vivid blue flowers in combination with the golden foliage of the Japanese forest grass and Berberis thunbergii 'Aurea' make for a classic color pairing.
