Mahogany and Yellow Foliage with Orange Blooms

Evergreen foliage in warm mahogony tones provides vivid contrast to bright yellow, grassy foliage of Carex 'Everillo' and is a wonderful foil for the tubular orange flowers of the cuphea. This vignette is perfect for containers and will look good for months on end. Hummingbirds will flock to the tubular blooms of the Vermillionaire cuphea.
