    That is Japanese Forest Grass - hakonechloa macro 'Aureola'. Best in part shade. One of my favorite plants!

    Actually, I take no credit for the plants in the containers as my client planted them!! I think they are coleus and begonias and abutilon (flowering maple) with a big fern in the back. For shade containers I love to plant Angel Wing Begonias.

    I appreciate the information... it is the Flowering Maple that really caught my eye. Hopefully I can find several full grown as well as the Angel Wing Begonias.

    6. Traditional with a twist. This New York garden has plants we’ve seen before, but in an arrangement that feels at once fresh and familiar. Instead of the usual row of evergreen boxwoods marching along the foundation, the designer used three tiers of boxwoods — all clipped to spheres in stair-stepping sizes — to form a backdrop like oversize green gum balls. The large columnar planter in the middle of the bed further breaks up the predicability of the design and allows for an easy-to-change seasonal container planting. Pale golden Japanese forest grass and silvery-green catmint fill in the front of the border.Plant Combination Boxwood (Buxus sp.)Catmint (Nepeta sp.)Golden Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’, zones 4 to 9)Water requirement: ModerateLight requirement: Full sun to partial sun

    7. Plunk a seasonal container in established beds. There’s no need to make major changes to existing landscaping to update the look of your front garden. Instead, drop a large container planted with summer flowers into the bed. If your existing irrigation system doesn’t reach the container, add a drip line for the pot or plan on watering by hand as needed.Two container combinations to try: For sun, plant North American native purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea, zones 3 to 9) with billowing Latin American fleabane (Erigeron karvinskianus, Zone 6). For shade, plant delicate Chinese foxglove (Rehmannia elata, zones 7 to 10) with silver-leaved, blue-flowering ‘Jack Frost’ brunnera (Brunnera macrophylla ‘Jack Frost’, zones 3 to 8).

    uses traditional plants in a more modern way angular planter is eye catching gravel and grasses to separate hardscapes
