What an inspired combination!
A mix of shrubs with ground cover wintergreen and sparkling white hellebores will look great right through the winter. (Zones 7 - 9). Colder zones will need to substitute something a bit more hardy for nandina. (We suggest a holly such as Nordic™ Inkberry Holly, which looks somewhat the same and stays somewhat small).
Who needs lots of flowers, right?
