I wanted to share this combination because of its contrast in leaf colours and foliage forms. Though there is a white Hydrangea in the photo, this combination looks interesting and fresh even when nothing is in bloom. The plants are Brunnera macrophylla 'Looking Glass', Japanese Painted Fern (Athyrium niponicum 'Pictum', Hebes (the plant with the small gray leaves in the back ground, unfortunately I don't recall the type), Cimicifuga japonica, assorted Heucheras, and white Hydrangeas. In the dead of Winter when many of these perennials are dormant this bed is filled with Wanda Primroses (which are dormant now), adding much needed colour in February and March.
