Sunny Mixed Border with Foliage and Flowers

For the foliage nerds in the crowd, you'll appreciate to interplay of the chartreuse green umbels of Bupleurum fruticosum with the golden evergreen foliage of Cryptomeria japonica 'Sekken Sugi'. Burgundy foliage of the Smokebush is attractive contrast to the yellow and the sedge covers the ground with evergreen variegated foliage. And of course, we all love blooms, and those are delivered over many months by Geranium ''Rozanne' and the China rose.
