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:

 

Combine with silver foliage plants (Artemesia, Stachys -Lamb's Ear and Variegated Liriope) for a beautiful contrast. Also try low growing Indian Hawthorne and sun loving perennials (such as Echinacea or Daylilies) and evergreen groundcovers (such as Blue Rug Juniper) around and in front of these mid-size shrubs. Use taller woody ornamentals or ornamental grasses as a backdrop. Try Paniculata type hydrangeas, Loropetalum and Miscanthus.
