Foliage-driven Garden Plan with Abundant Summer Flowers
These six plants were carefully selected to work perfectly together by garden design guru, Darcy Daniels, creator of eGardenGo and designer with Bloomtown® Gardens.
A focus on foliage ensures that this plant combination will look good for months on end—from spring to fall, fab foliage creates an engaging tableau with its variety of textures. In summer, abundant blooms add to the show—the dwarf form of the Quickfire™panicle hydrangea is surrounded by a carpet of pretty pink blooms from the hardy geranium.
