A lone tree begs to be underplanted. You can
be a lot more creative than simply surrounding
it with Ivy, Pachysandra or Vinca. Here, Caladiums
are the scene-stealers. (Actually, we prefer
their common name, “Rainbow Plants,” because
no two leaves are ever identical. They add lively
color to shaded areas.) Astilbes heighten the
red and pink color emphasis. Hostas and Ferns
provide long-lasting foliage contrasts.
This garden is a delight in any shady location,
with or without a tree. Fills approximately
100 sq. ft. with color and elegance all summer
