I'm assuming you are referring to the plant next to the tree trunk....It looks more like Brunnera macrophylla to me. Google brunnera foliage because there are many different cultivars. They like shade or part/shade, have blue flowers in spring and are very hardy. I like the cultivar 'Jack Frost' which has a really silver leaf and brightens up a shady area.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to Are Plantation Shutters the Right Choice for Your Windows?
"Traditional" shutters are not the same as plantation shutters. They have the smaller, narrower louvers and are more often found in the New England states. Traditional shutters are rarely installed today since the trend is toward letting in lots of light and keeping the view open to the outside.
Lisa Frederick added this to How to Work With a Landscape Pro
Know the look you want. It helps to have at least a basic idea of your preferred style and maintenance level. Do you prefer formal gardens or a wilder, more free-form look? Do you want plants that thrive under benign neglect, or are you willing to take on specimens that need a lot of care and attention? Will you need paths, pavers or other hardscaping? How do you prefer to water? A little direction will help your pro fine-tune your options. At the same time, allow room for creativity — your landscaper's imagination and expertise are the reason you hired him or her. Be open to feedback and suggestion. And don't automatically nix plants you think you dislike; you may find that they gain a whole new appeal as part of the right overall scheme.
Falon Land Studio LLC added this to Gardening Solutions for Heavy Clay Soils
Planning the GardenPlan your garden as a composition of plants that work together. Think of your garden like a plant community, where the species interact to support one another and thrive. The magic of the tallgrass prairie in the Midwest, for example, is that the plants grow to a range of very different root depths; the roots are able to pull moisture and nutrients from different areas of the soil. What clever plants! Armed with this knowledge, you too can mimic the prairie condition by planting different species that have different root types together.
