Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
It depends on the area and amount of sunlight you will be planting. Shaded verses full sun?

Frank Organ added this to Unsung Garden Hero: Fantastic Foliage
A tapestry of green. This wonderful shade planting scheme shows us just how foliage alone can give us a great amount of color, creating a green tapestry. The shapes and color of leaves provide much interest. In fact, the shapes of leaves can almost be as varied as the shapes of flowers. While foliage is seldom bright (there are colorful exceptions, of course), it can create a satisfying and sustaining landscape.
