Due to its reliance on foliage, this plant combination looks great year-round. Perfect for a front yard entry garden—there's even a planting plan to help you get the quantity and spacing right!
The vignette is enhanced by seasonal blooms; in late winter the hellebore produces apple green flowers and a bit later, ivory clusters are set off against the copper-colored foliage of the ninebark. The ninebark loses its foliage in winter, though remains interesting thanks to papery, exfoliating bark. The remaining three plants provide a steady evergreen frame.
Try this one in any full sun location that you'll be viewing throughout the year. Low-maintenance, drought-tolerant and handsome too—what's not to love?
