Garden Plan Attractive Year-round with Fab Fall Finish

Thanks to an emphasis on creating interest using foliage of contrasting size, shape, texture and color, this plant combination looks good from spring to fall. Summer blooms are a bonus and are contributed by the hardy geranium and the oakleaf hydrangea. In fall, a colorful finish from the Burgundy Jewel maple and the hydrangea extend the season. In winter, a dwarf form of evergreen box honeysuckle with yellow foliage and blue fescue cover and protect the ground and together with the winter stems of the vine maple provide simple, but effective structure.
