Yes, that is Pachysandra along the front of the Hydrangea and Hostas.

It looks like a hosta to me. There are so many varieties of hosta it's probably best to go to your local nursery and select the one that best suits your site. Some can deal with quite a bit of sun, others...like the more blue leaved varieties like more shade. Google Hosta and you will get lots more information. I hope this helps!

2. The Secluded NookNot all garden seating areas have to be formal decks, patios or balconies. A secret garden can be nestled into the edge of a border right among the plants, giving you a front-row seat for watching butterflies and smelling the roses. Add lots of plants behind and to each side to create a leafy enclosure. Fragrant plants in such an intimate space would be a delightful bonus.
