Low Maintenance Plant Duo with Foliage Focus

This easy-to-grow foliage combo provides a solid base on which to expand. The golden sweet flag carpets the ground in glossy evergreen foliage that's great for brightening a shady spot. The persicaria's mounds of colorful variegated foliage occupies the mid-plane. This duo would be a great addition to a garden bed that needs a stronger base and would help it look good for months on end.
