7. Black foliage. I’m the first to admit that plants with dark foliage can be tricky to use. Large areas of darkness can read as a “hole” in the design if not carefully placed. The secret to using dark foliage successfully is to pair it with a lighter, brighter counterpart. The gold moneywort (Lysimachia nummularia ‘Aurea’) slinking under the black mondo grass (Ophiopogon planiscapus ‘Nigrescens’) here helps give the mondo grass its definition.
