Companion/Accent Plantings for the Hosta Garden (pic heavy)
Please share pics of your favorite accent plants in your hosta gardens.
A few to start -
'Branford Beauty' Fern - nice dusty color for contrast
'Sun King' Aralia - 3rd season, will get to 3'x3'; stays yellow all season. This one is in lots of shade. Follage dies back in winter.
'Sea Heart' Brunnera - new, still in pot looking for a shady spot. 'Jack Frost' is another good growing variety that is similar.
'Gold Heart' Bleeding Heart - another nice yellow/gold for the shade. In my Minnesota garden Gold Heart does not go dormant.
'Raspberry Splash' Pulmonaria - great blooming colors early and then spectacular leaf markings as leaves emerge and push down the scapes.
Blooms in May
Leaves in August (part shade)
