Woodland Combo with Strong Foliage and Vivid Summer Blooms

This combination with strong all-season structure looks good year-round, but is enlivened in summer by the vivid and velvety purple spires of the astilbe blooms and in late winter into early spring, the apple green flowers of the hellebore are a welcome addition.
