Chartreuse and Burgundy

One of my favorite foliage color combinations in the garden is chartreuse and burgundy and this is one of the best examples of that combination at its peak in my mediation garden. This is heuchera 'Persian Carpet' (I believe), bacopa 'Olympic Gold', and ajuga 'Chocolate Chip'. This area gets partial sun.

Hi Sheila! THis is one of my favorite color combinations, too! That chartreuse adds a nice touch to every color in the garden. I especially like using it around stepping stones (like creeping jenny plants) to make the walkway pop. Great site! Thanks for the visit and comment on my blog as well.

It's a beautiful color combination, and you've done it very nicely with this grouping. Great color and textural contrast!
