A pairing of green and lavender-blue creates a serene mood in the shade. Flowering fronds of maidenhair fern (Adiantum pedatum) interwoven with wheellike lavender blossoms of woodland phlox (Phlox divaricata) rest easy on the eye. Pink blooms of Geranium maculatum add a little zing and warmth to this combination, in a wooded area of Chanticleer, a public garden in Wayne, Pennsylvania.
