Plant Combo for Screening Uses Grasses, Hydrangea, and Dwarf Conifer

Big, blowzy grasses intermixed with a sun-tolerant, panicle-style hydrangea, and a handsome dwarf conifer create an easygoing foliage border. Together they make a wonderful living screen or the backdrop for a deep border. To round-out this vignette and to add a bit of oomph to its flower power, consider adding a fringe of color at its foot, Geranium 'Rozanne' would do nicely.
