About this EZ Scape™

  •  

    Seasonal Progression

    This shade loving combo is built on fantastic foliage for a full three seasons of interest. ‘Heaven Scent’ Polemonium will lead the way in spring with clusters of pink and blue flowers. The frond-like foliage of ‘Heaven Scent’ will only get bigger and better as the season progresses, playing the perfect match to the fronds of ‘Crested Surf’ Painted Fern. DOCLE® Heuchera will add a third leaf shape with a dense habit of ruffled foliage. Mix these three perennials along the front of the border, and reserve the back for the large stately grace of a SHADOWLAND® Hosta.
