I have a few things around my blue Endless Summers that look pretty good:

1. Paul's Glory hostas - the chartreuse/gold/yellow center lights up the whole area!

2. Astilbes - I got Lollipop and Montgomery - both look good but then the Lollipop has too short a bloom time...

3. Tradescantia Blue & Gold - oh my, this one is a STAR! The grassy, chartreuse leaves are excellent next to the hydrangeas and the gentian blue flowers are stunning! Check it out.

4. Dicentra Luxuriant - lovely fern like leaves and also delicate pink flowers with a long bloom period.

I hope this helps!
