An easy way to create a pleasing composition is to place plants with different growh habits next to each other. Here the rounded shape and stiff, upright growth habit of a variegated hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Variegata’) is softened by the billowing fountain shape of Miscanthus sinensis ‘Gracillimus’ in a border at the New York Botanical Garden.
