Textured foundation planting

This foundation planting can handle the tough, hot conditions created by lots of concrete. And on top of adding lots of color, the plants in this plan provide tons of interesting texture, from the disease-resistant shrub roses to the attention-grabbing grasses. Don’t want to take care of containers? Trellises and vines with large flowers or leaves will add height contrast, instead.
