But who invited them to a ball where the decorations are bubblegum pink?
This is what happens when you go from close up to long shot. Aack.
I can't get used to the bronzy gold and yellow Epimedium perralchicum 'Frohnleiten' paired with the hot pink flowering dogwood. They bloom at the same time. This was not intended.
I keep thinking about moving the epidmediums. Should I?
It's only a small patch, spreading very slowly from right to left down the slope. The rust and golden tones are tempered by some green things at ground level that you can see in the longer shot. There is daylily foliage, a low birds nest spruce, some emerging hostas. Green lawn helps mitigate the effect I suppose.
Really, this planting doesn't work together. So don't focus on the long view. Enjoy the fairy wing epimediums up close, as they should be seen, and then squint when you step back.
