Plant Combo with Foliage as Showy as Flowers

This foliage combo is all-evergreen, all-the-time, however it also has pleasing seasonal changes that are every bit as showy as flowers. Ruby-colored cones stand out against fresh blue foliage on the dwarf conifer, coral-to-pink juvenile foliage with white variegated foliage results in a kaleidoscope of color on the aptly named 'Flaming Silver' andromeda, and both echo the tones of Heuchera 'Mahogany'. The compact and tidy evergreen grass (Carex conica 'Snowline') is light and bright on the ground plane thanks to white variegation. This planting combination is the epitome of easy care.
