This lush, shade-loving garden tapestry looks great from spring to fall, thanks to its reliance on foliage texture and color and a variety of leaf shapes. The giant, glossy, disc-shaped foliage of Podophyllum pleianthum and the luminous leaves of the the golden aralia brighten a shady spot with their light-reflecting qualities. Impatiens omeiana, though quite hardy, lends a tropical flair to the overall scheme with its colorful, palmate foliage.
