Plants not included.



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

This calm shady border will create a serene and beautiful space in your garden with a combination of cool lime greens contrasting with warm, deep reds from a variety of flowering shrubs, forming the perfect backdrop for a host of soft perennials in pastel hues of pinks, purples and whites. Amongst some of the plants featured you’ll find feathery ferns mixed in with sparkly white Astrantia, and Hydrangea Limelight partnered with Physocarpus Lady in Red, all providing gorgeous texture and depth to this shady retreat.
