Ok, not a photo person...too much....but will publish one of Coppershine. It will be at its best mid spring I guess. Agree it's not readily available now is it? Cant remember where I got it but it's a few years old now. I will have to propagate it and sell it to make my fortune I trim it at summer's end so it averages 4' high and 5' across
Scroggin, yes, acteas can grow in the sun but then need good moisture retentive soil or those lovely coloured leaves will crisp and curl. I make sure my acteas receive top up of water too now and then
Dove, frikartii monch, verbena rigida, even geranium rozanne in front of Cornus aurea? Better still geranium black beauty.....almost black foliage, mound forming (so 3) and gentian blue flowers in summer. For a bit more corneyness how about hackonochloa next to black beauty?
