Hostas, bleeding hearts and ferns. Bottom: Purple Oxalis contrasts yellow Corydalis in both color and texture. Pair oxalis with burgundy tones of Japanese painted fern. Spotted lungwort ties into the silvery fern fronds, and big-leaf Petasites and hostas offers fun contrast with its large leaves.

'Limelight' Hydrangea is unique because its cone-shape flowers open a lovely shade of chartreuse then fade to rich pink in fall. It's a vigorous shrub that's great for informal hedges, as well as a top-notch cut flower. They grow up to 8 ft tall, can grow in full sun or shade and can tolerate dry soil. Beautiful!
What to Prune When lilac and forsythia should be pruned late spring - immediately after they finish blooming. Hydrangeas bloom on old wood. Prune these types of hydrangeas before midsummer. If you prune them in winter or early spring, you'll be removing flower buds
