Plant Combo with Gold Foliage

Aralia cordata 'Sun King' (middle) with its bold foliage offers its steady presence from spring to frost and is complimented by the long-blooming Fuchsia magellenica 'Aurea' (left). The bold versus fine foliage delivers lively textural contrast that is further enhanced by the exceptionally long bloom period of the hardy fuchsia.
