    Design IdeasA smaller version of Wine & Roses better fits into small gardens but still deserves high profile locations in foundation planting. Best located on light color walls or use the intense foliage color to mark entries around porch or stoop. Essential to the middle of a shrub border for multi-season interest. Makes a good accent against yellow and lime green foliage plants. Great choice for romantic cottage garden compositions and causal country gardens along picket fences or rails.
    Companion PlantsThis beauty deserves to be combined with strong contrasting foliage of Variegated Hydrangea, (Hydrangea macrophylla 'Variegata), Golden Nugget Dwarf Japanese Barberry, (Berberis thunbergii 'Monlers'), Variegated Fallopia, (Fallopia japonica 'Variegata'), and French Lace Weigela, (Weigela florida 'Brigela'). Combine with hardy perennials such as Festiva Maxima Peony, (Paeonia x 'Festiva Maxima'), Visions Astilbe, (Astilbe chinensis 'Visions') and Auslese Lady's Mangle, (Alchemilla mollis 'Auslese').
