About this EZ Scape™


    Seasonal Progression

    Foliage and flowers combine with this combo to create a bright spot in shady garden areas. Queen of Hearts Brunnera will be up first with an early spring burst of periwinkle blue flowers. As the flowers fade massive silver leaves will overtake them and shine through the end of the year. In early summer sprays of cream flowers will emerge over the fine textured Chantilly Lace Goatsbeard. A constant through the seasons will be the large, ruffled leaves of DRESSED UP™ Heuchera. Semi-evergreen, these plants will provide fall and winter interest as well.
