This planting combination will perform best in bright, open shade or filtered sun with regular water. It relies heavily on foliage to deliver year-round good-looks. But there’s ample blooms from spring to fall to keep the flower-lovers happy too. The evergreen plants were selected to provide screening and division of space without being overly dominant or getting too large for the space. All of this makes this planting plan a good choice for adding curb appeal to your front yard garden or urban courtyard. There’s a nice balance of evergreen plants to provide a steady presence against plants that provide flowers, fragrance, wonderful foliage in a variety of shapes, colors, and textures. In fall, the Seiryu Japanese maple puts on a gorgeous display.
