design help for existing front garden
Hoping this might be the spot for input. Need recommendations on plant and general design asthetic for my existing North facing front foundation garden. No hardscape changes at this time. front half of bed receives afternoon sun. Back half recieves no direct sun. Bright shade.
A Jane Magnolia will go on the NE corner (you'll see it in the pic). Heuchera planted along the front, they do well and we like them. Maybe not in the right spot though. Three hostas on right hand side bordering the corner. Everything else in the garden will be transplanted elsewhere.
Also in the front yard a Kousa dogwood centering the garden in middle of lawn. To right of the garden, small covered patio then two car garage with blue atlas on the far NW corner.
Thinking of fire and ice hydrangea, on the side without windows. One or two? Having a hard time determing best perennials for all season interest and working best with the magnolia and hydrangea. Not a big astilbe fan, but perhaps. Thoughts or ideas? Thank you!!!
