Low-Maintenance Landscape, rear of yard near fire pit. a white pine dominates against a wooden fence.A globe blue spruce bridges the divide between path and trees behind it. Pulmonaria and ferns offer hardy growth patterns with little TLC.
Accentuate Fall Color - One sure way to highlight the fall colors in your yard is to pair them with evergreens. Green looks smashing against bold reds and oranges. And bright yellows practically sing next to a dark green background.
Enjoy a beautiful carpet by letting spreading evergreens become a groundcover. A creeping blue spruce (Picea pungens 'Procumbens', shown here), junipers, or spreading pine is perfect for filling a space with year-round color and interest.
selecting varieties that offer different shapes and colors. 'Blue Shag' white pine, 'Montgomery' blue spruce, and 'Silver Whispers' Swiss stone pine combine beautifully with 'Profusion White' zinnia, for example. A perfect "Randi" grouping!
