About this EZ Scape™


    Seasonal Progression

    Leave it to the leaves in this foliage friendly combination for the shade. Each of these perennials carries substantial foliage interest with complementing colors and texture. Pink-a-Blue Pulmonaria will be covered in periwinkle blue flowers in early spring before large silver splashed leaves take over in summer. PRIMO® Heuchera will have rich foliage colors starting in spring and tall flower spikes in summer. Expect these to be semi-evergreen and add interest in colder months. SHADOWLAND® Hosta vary in size and color, but all are classic, durable garden plants with strong spring and summer foliage interest.
