Foliage keeps this border looking good nearly all year. Wine-red Cordyline ‘Design-a-Line Burgundy’, silvery green Astelia chathamica x nervosa ‘Silver Shadow’, plum- hued Loropetalum chinense ‘Purple Pixie’, and yellow-green Carex ‘Everillo’ cluster in the foreground; reddish nandinas brighten the back. The apricot- flowered Digiplexis ‘Illumination Flame’ is a dramatic accent. DESIGN Johanna Silver, Lauren Dunec Hoang
