Create long-lasting, pleasing contrasts in your garden. Combine the showy, lime-green to gold bracts of Cushion Spurge (Euphorbia polychroma) with the attractive, coppery-purple foliage of Japanese Barberry (Berberis thunbergii 'Atropurpurea Nana'). Complement these foliage plants with the vibrant blossoms of a few exceptionally beautiful Lily-flowered tulips and enjoy their color splash and fascinating display from late spring to fall. Fairly easy to re-create and low maintenance!
