Planting Combination of bear's britches (Acanthus mollis) and evergreen variegated grass (Carex oshiomensis 'Evergold') can look good year-round in mild winters. Shade tolerant and easy care, but site it carefully, as the Acanthus can be difficult to successfully remove because it re-grow from pieces of remaining root.
