A simple and sophisticated foliage combo in shades of green. The evergreen and all-season anchors include a finely-textured, slow-growing yellow-green bun; Lonicera nitida 'Twiggy', which is complemented by the leathery, silver-green mounding foliage of Helleborus x sternii. In late winter into early spring, apple-green blooms with a hint of burgundy provide early-season flowers, when we're most anxious to see them. The grassy, golden-green foliage of Japanese forest grass adds a bright spot and flowing, cascading movement to an otherwise rigid scene.
