Plant Combo Featuring Chartreuse and Magenta for Part Shade

This plant combo brings vivid color and playful rhythm to the part-shade garden. The chartreuse tones of the evergreen Carex grass echo those found in the lush and bold hosta leaves; however the strappy foliage provides a refreshing textural contrast. The magenta flowers of the Weigela shrub emerge against a backdrop of bright green and create a stunning effect. These blooms also reference the rosy hue of the stand of Heuchera, establishing another pleasing rhythm in this planting. This low maintenance plant pairing adds tremendous interest to the garden.
