This foliage-first planting combination for a compact spot looks great year-round and relies on a quartet of easy-care, commonly available, reliable evergreen plants. The common Viburnum davidii with its glossy green foliage is elevated when paired with the fine texture and bright variegation of Carex 'Everest'. Juvenile foliage of Pieris 'Little Heath' is tipped with pink to bronze and complements Heuchera 'Mahogany'.
