Design IdeasThe blue-green overall color that results from these creamy variegations are cool, crisp and easily overwhelmed by more potently colored plants. Use carefully amidst emerald greens, pale blue and white for a refreshing composition in shrub beds, as hedges, single specimen or as an accent in background planting. Gives the illusion of dappled sunlight in dark or overgrown niches and corners.
