Plant Combo with Textural Contrast and Spring Blooms

The yellow-green variegation of Fatsia japonica 'Variegata' Camouflage is like a splash on sunshine on its bold, showy foliage. Rhododendron 'Medusa' is covered with pendants of rich coral orange in spring. The strong textural contrast of the three plants energizes the scene. The finely textured, evergreen Carex 'Everest' anchors the ground plane and acts like a footlight to the entire scene.
