This combination will look great for months on end and would be perfect for adding curb appeal to a front yard garden or courtyard.
An underlying thread of orange-red knits the flowers and foliage together. And the classic color pairing of blue and yellow foliage on the evergreen, anchoring shrubs is handsome year-round.
From spring into summer, Geum 'Sangria' produces tall flowers on slender stems. Deadhead to promote re-bloom. Choisya t. 'Sundance' provide fragrance and fresh white flowers.
