Protect this foliage combo from the hot afternoon blast of sun and control for slugs; both of these forces have the ability to mar the foliage in season-long proportions. This full shade combo benefits from the light reflecting effects of golden and white variegated foliage. The bold, glossy, bronze foliage of Britt-Marie is the primary reason to grow this perennial -- yellow daisy-like blooms appear in summer but most gardeners prefer to remove them as soon as they show sins of fading to maintain its attractive foliage display.
