Companion Plants

There are several plants that would make great companions in the garden or landscape.
The key to companion planting is selecting plants with similar cultural requirements. Below are a few suggestions:

 

Use taller evergreens and ornamental grasses as a backdrop. Silver foliage plants such as Artemesia, Stachys -Lamb's Ear and Variegated Liriope create a beautiful contrast. Also try low growing Indian Hawthorne and sun loving annuals & perennials such as Echinacea or Daylilies. Evergreen groundcovers such as Blue Rug Juniper planted underneath create a carpet effect.
