Four-season Foliage-centric Planting Bed in Part Sun

Four-season, Foliage-centric Planting Bed for Part Sun

These plants were carefully selected to work perfectly together by garden design guru, Darcy Daniels of Bloomtown® Gardens. Stewartia monadelpha is a slow-growing tree selected for its gorgeous bark, summer blooms and excellent fall color. A fragrant, summer-blooming daphne with its rounded shape and lightly variegated foliage makes a lovely pairing with the cool blue foliage of the upright, shade-tolerant conifer. Masses of evergreen Acorus 'Ogon' create a dense mat of golden foliage around all.
