Garden Description

It only takes six different types of plants and a shady border to create this springtime garden plan. Start by planting the bleeding hearts and then add the yellow, daisy-like flowers, the leopardsbane, to give the garden some height. Taper the garden down by planting the bergenias and coralbells. Foilage to use includes bugleweed and hostas.
