Design IdeasHere's a little hedge that brings light to dark gardens. Stands out boldly next to green lawns and works nicely as edging, hedges or small topiary forms. May also be used in shrub and perennial borders to create neutral fields of color that accentuate other foliage and flowers. Makes a perfect cover-up for the foundation of a wall draped with Chinese Wisteria (Wisteria sinensis) and other purple-blue flowering vines.
