Copper is the name of the game in this little vignette designed by Beth Giebel in New Milford, Connecticut. In it, she combines a ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius cv., Zones 3-7), a sneezeweed (Helenium cv., Zones 4-8), and a copper trellis to harmonious effect against a stunning stone wall that has rusty patches that fit right in with the color scheme. By the way, who says you need to grow something on a trellis? Sometimes it makes an even more effective focal point or backdrop without the benefit of a vine.
