Warm bed in the shade
Tish Treherne's garden on Bainbridge Island, Washington, features a variety of warm colors that do well in the shade.
Plants like Spiraea japonica ‘Goldflame,’ Acorus gramineus ‘Ogon’ (foreground) and a grassy Deschampsia flexuosa ‘Aurea’ carry their hues throughout the border for overall harmony.
Acer palmatum ‘Bloodgood’ arches over the top: “I particularly like trees whose bright red or orange fall color floats above blue or chartreuse foliage,” says the designer.
