Hosta

Bunchberry makes a lovely carpet surrounding larger hostas. Gold and chartreuse hostas play off bunchberries red fruits, and white variegated forms look good with bunchberry blooms.

Foamflower

Feathery foamflower softens the medium texture of bunchberry. Its lobed foliage contrasts well with the whorls of bunchberry foliage.

Hydrangea

Hydrangeas and bunchberry both appreciate constant moisture and partial shade. Use bunchberry at the base of pink, white, or blue hydrangeas for a stunning effect.
