This richly textural floral and foliar combination comes with a colorful zinger in winter: vibrant red twigs emerge as leaves drop from the Pacific Fire vine maple. In spring, chains of white blossoms drip from the Ribes, feeding hummingbirds and pollinators. Hosta 'Sagae' brightens the ensemble in summer, with the Western sword fern providing year-round texture, unfurling warm brown crosiers in spring.
