This collection combines some appealing leaf
shapes and colors that look sensational in shade.
The three Ostrich Plume Ferns, with tall, feather-like
fronds, and the eight Hostas, with heart-shaped,
richly textured leaves, are particularly good
companions to the beautiful collection of flowering
plants that round out the design.

With the proper selection of shade-loving shrubs
and perennials, you can give your shady foundations
just as much elegance and beauty as those which
are exposed to the sun. For this garden, we
have selected a combination of Astilbes, Hostas,
Ferns, Blue Pearl Polemonium and Hardy Cyclamen,
and added the continuous blooming beauty of
the Fairy Roses and the showy Sister Therese
Hydrangea.

You’ll find this garden not only makes an outstanding
planting for your home’s foundations, but can
also be arranged in a variety of ways to bring
special beauty to any shady area of about 90
sq. ft.
