Design IdeasThis outstanding three season specimen should become a featured focal point. Use in shrub borders for late season foliage interest. Provide unique effects against light value evergreens and as a dark background for high contrast perennials in mixed beds. It's a fine foundation plant to highlight important points in the architecture or to call attention to entries and gateways. Excellent choice for adding background interest to fountains and water gardens. Worth considering for color accent in stark modern landscapes or to add depths to vintage Craftsman era home gardens.
