Simple and Elegant Mixed Border Plant Combo

This plant combo could be used to create an attractive planted screen or mixed border hedge. The Japanese cedar and hardy schefflera are evergreen and do the heavy lifting in terms of screening. The floral notes are offered by Hydrangea 'Limelight' with panicle blooms that begin ivory but take on pink tones as they age, and Geranium 'Rozanne' provides months of bloom and covers the sometimes awkward and unsightly knees of the hydrangea. The finely textured,evergreen Gold Fountain Sedge is perfect pair to the bold foliage of Hosta 'Sagae', picking up the gold edge and accentuating it.
