Garden Plan with Fab Foliage & Summer Blooms

Let's hear it for hot colors in high summer! Vivid red panicles and multi-colored roses are real head-turners when in bloom. They're framed by a fantastic foliage duo; Berberis t. 'Orange Rocket' continues to color thread, but is cooled by its association with the blue-gray foliage of Hebe p. 'Sutherlandii' and tawny tones of Carex f. 'Toffee Twist'. Be sure to check out the planting plan in the images for help in re-creating this plant combination in your garden.
