A great example of garden design, this plant combination flaunts its autumn colors.
I happened upon this fall gem
tucked away at the rear entrance to the AACA Library and Research Center
in Hershey, PA.
Glowing golden hues of Dwarf Fothergilla (Fothergilla gardenii)
blend beautifully with
crimson Cutleaf Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum var. dissectum),
Dwarf Zebra Grass (Miscanthus sinensis 'Little Zebra') and
Fountain Grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides).
Evergreens add contrast, structure and winter presence.
The burgundy echoed in the larger Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum)
contributes an overhead canopy.

one of the stars of this garden, that will
