This understaed combo is all about foliage. It almost begs you to lean down and touch the leaves. Who needs flowers with textures like these? Included is ‘Catlin’s Giant’ carpet bugleweed (Ajuga reptans ‘Catlin’s Giant’, Zones 3-9), Silver-variegated Japanese sedge (Carex morrowii ‘Variegata’, Zones 5-9), and Japanese fatsia (Fatsia japonica, Zones 8-10). This combo was designed by Sabrina and Freeland Tanner in Napa, California.
