Lushing up a shade garden

40-50 year old rhodys shade this small hillside that slopes to a walkway in front of floor-to-ceiling windows, along the kitchen and dining room.  A palette of 3 hosta varieties, 2 fern varieties, acuba, white bleeding heart, japanese forest grass, dogwood bunchberry, and hydrangea were chosen to create seasonal and year-round intrest – painting a large splash of vibrant green tones through the picture windows.

Before:

After (with a few that still need to be put in the ground):
