I believe every border has a personality of its own, and the shady colour border can be described as ‘surprising’.

In the heart of this shady border, unexpected bursts of colour stand out from a serene backdrop. Amongst the cool and calm greenery, pops of deep reds from Astilbe and Hellebores, striking orange from Geum Firestorm, the vivid pink of Anemone Prinz Henrick and the rich purple of Liriope all stand out like jewels and infuse life and energy into the shadowy corners of your garden. This shady border will surprise and delight you with its contrast of tranquillity versus vivacity.
