Four-season Foliage Garden for Front Yard

Fantastic foliage and four-season good looks make this combination well-suited for a highly visible spot—perfect for gracing a planting bed at your front entry. Plenty of evergreen foliage coupled with enough seasonal change to keep it interesting—fall color and red stems in winter from the Pacific Fire vine maple, blooms and fragrance in spring from the Mexican orange, and lush, colorful foliage for 3-seasons from Hosta 'June'. Low-maintenance too—very little deadheading or fussy pruning required.
