Splashes Of Colors For My Shady Garden

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Summer Borders


A stunning border for shady gardens. Created by Carter Rohrer Co, only 2 ingredients were used to achieve this lovely decor. The Hydrangea 'Endless Summer' (Hydrangea macrophylla) and the deep purple Astilbe 'Visions' (Astilbe chinensis). They both provide a very distinctive scenery and are almost glowing in the shade!
