About this EZ Scape™

    Seasonal Progression

    Use this foliage centric shade recipe to keep your garden glamorous and the deer at bay. Begin with the silver foliage of Jack of Diamonds Brunnera, an early flowering perennial which will produce airy sprays of forget-me-not-like flowers in early spring. Next add in the dark fronds of Heaven Scent Polemonium, which will show early burgundy foliage color followed by fragrant crusters of blue flowers in late spring. DOLCE® Heuchera will add constant foliage color from spring through autumn (and later as they are semi-evergreen). Tall scapes of flowers appear in summer for added interest.

    Moisture: Moderate
    Soil: Best in well-drained soils
    Zones: 4-7
