The chartreuse umbels of Bupleurum fruticosum are contrast with its base of green foliage and echo the golden tones of the duo of evergreen conifers; both with golden foliage, but strongly contrasting forms. Swane's Gold Italian cypress is strongly upright and Daub's Frosted juniper is very horizontal and spreading; together this three plants make a strong architectural frame for the perennial flowers selected for ease of care and hardy constitution.
