Lush Foliage Combo for Shade

Though anchored by fabulous foliage colors and textures, this plant combination is generous in blooms as well. In spring, My Monet weigelia is covered with magenta-pink, tubular flowers. From summer to fall, Hydrangea serrata 'Preziosa' provides an evolving display of flowers and foliage.This plant combination will do well in a part shade to part sun garden. To prevent foliage burn don't plant in direct, hot sun. Morning sun would be ideal. Avoid exposing it to the "afternoon blast" or reflected heat.
