Colorful Foliage Bed


This garden bed was planted with contrasting plant foliage in mind. The lime colored leaves of the two hydrangeas, oakleaf hydrangea  'Little Honey' and hydrangea 'Lemon Daddy',  and a red twig dogwood, 'Neon Burst', are a good foil for the purple leaves of the smoke bush, 'Royal Purple' and the emerging leaves of the pineapple lilies, 'Sparkling Burgundy'. There is a solid backdrop of green from a large camellia, Ostamanthus fragrans, dwarf camellias and an Edgeworthia. Foam flowers, provide a nice ground cover.
