Shady nook garden plan

This 6x6-ft. garden bed is aglow with white, pink, and purple blooms. Variegated lamium, brunnera, and Japanese painted ferns form a foliage ruffle around a pillar topped with an outdoor candle. An attractive arc of nandina adds structure, while foxglove livens the area in early summer. A burgundy Japanese maple contrasts nicely with some bright green companions. It pairs well with variegated hosta, fernlike astilbe, and spotted pulmonaria for long-lasting interest.
