Planting Combination

Plants, clockwise from right: Cryptomeria japonica 'Rein's Dense Jade', Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola', Hosta 'Halcyon', Astelia nervosa 'Westland' Podocarpus alpinus 'Blue Gem', Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola', and Stachyurus praecox.

This mixed border, shown here during early summer relies on diverse and colorful foliage to deliver all-season appeal. A healthy percentage of evergreen plants provide winter interest and structure while the Stachyurus provides fall color in addition to a dramatic late winter show with it's stange pendulous blooms.
