Create a vibrant perennial shade corner within your space by blending short, medium, and large varieties such as Lungwort, Brunnera, and Coral Bells. Incorporate classic favorites of variegated white/green Hosta for lush foliage contrast. For additional texture, plant an upright shrub like a Fineline Buckthorn.
