Mixed Shrub Border with Burgundy and Gold Foliage

A trio of easy-care shrubs are the core of this combination. Two evergreens in gold-to-yellow tones add brightness and attractive in contrast with the burgundy foliage of the Orange Rocket barberry when its present from spring to fall. Blue to purple blooms from two high-performing perennials round out the scene. Plenty of sun, occasional water, and you're good to go.
