Rich and Creamy Plant Combo for Shade Garden

This rich and delicious foliage plant combo is anchored year-round by an evergreen species rhodie, Rhododendron pachysanthum that is especially attractive in spring to early summer when its emerging foliage displays the furry indumentum for which it is most known. Delicate, ivory-colored bloom spires of Astilbe 'Deutschland' are a creamy froth that hovers over cinnamon foliage and wands of variegated Solomon seal foliage contribute a fresh, green note via a sturdy, easy care woodland perennial.
