Mixed Border with Great Foliage for Woodland Garden

The golden canopy of the Autumn Moon maple is echoed on the ground plane by a carpet of dwarf golden sweet flag. Bergenia 'Angel Kiss' is an evergreen perennial that has sweet white blooms in spring with a dark eye that is accentuated by proximity of the purple Heuchera. The big blue hosta was selected for foliage color and to add a bit of drama. Winter fragrance and all-season structure are contributed by Sarcococca 'Purple Stem'; the dark, colorful stems are a nice bonus that plays to the overall scene.
