Create this Sunset Showstopper Look!

Golden foliage plays a major part in the border, shown here from the end opposite the cordyline. Variegated ‘Little Miss Sunshine' Cistus forms a golden mound in the foreground, where it covers itself with cheerful white flowers in spring. Clumps of ‘Beyond Blue' Festuca to its right cool the heat of the red-tinged Obsession™ Nandina and bronze-tinged ‘Kaleidoscope' Abelia. Across the path, brilliant EverColor® 'Everillo' Carex and blue pots filled with ‘Lemon Lime' Nandina cool things off a bit. At the very back is an imposing Black Adder Phormium.

Bright gold EverColor® 'Everillo' Carex, at left, and silvery ‘Silver Shadow' Astelia, behind the cordyline, provide contrast. Midway back, an apricot flowered Digiplexis ‘Illumination Apricot’ echoes the fiery hues of heavenly bamboo Obsession™ Nandina toward the back.
