Create pleasing contrasts in your garden. Combine the showy, lime-green to gold bracts of Cushion Spurge (Euphorbia polychroma) with the architectural, coppery-purple foliage of Phormium tenax Purpureum Group (New Zealand Flax). Complement these foliage plants with the vibrant blossoms of a few exceptionally beautiful tulips and enjoy their color splash and fascinating display from mid to late spring. Fairly easy to re-create and low maintenance!
