This combination of four exceptionally tough plants integrates fine and coarse textures and a steady, subtly beautiful palette of warm earth tones for year-round beauty. The Acer griseum's cinnamon, flaky bark (seen here in winter) plays well with the burgundy tones of the Nandina, the leaf petioles of the Viburnum and the seed heads of the Carex. In summer, subtle burgundy tones play against olive green foliage of Acer, Nandina and Viburnum.
