Designing gardens is all about bringing plants together with an eye toward how the flowers and foliage shape, color and structure work next to another plant.

The second is for shade Japanese fern, hosta and European ginger.texture2

These combinations work so nicely because of the various textures, the glossiness of one foliage against another and the play of soft, subtle colors.
