Hydrangea serrata 'Preziosa' is the star of this show. This hydrangea looks great month after month and has a lovely seasonal flow. A sweep of Brunnera macrophylla 'Looking Glass' at its feet will cover any bare knees and the silver foliage is a lovely color contrast to the burgundy as well as a a soothing harmony of cool silver-green with the dwarf conifer.
