'Gruss an Aachen'
|Hydrangea 'Endless Summer' with Heuchersa 'Caramel' and 'Sashay', with |
Mukdenia 'Crimson Fans at lower left.
|I call this section of the garden "Sun and Moon." |
It relies on foliage color and texture for interest in
the middle of summer.
|Celosia and Coleus make great partners in the ground where they can |
spread out. This spot is partially shady but still provides enough
light to color up the leaves, creating an in-ground bouquet.
|Celosia spicata 'Flamingo Feather Purple'|
