Plant Combinations: Deer-Proof Color for the Winter Landscape

This plant combo provides all the beauty you crave in the winter landscape without laying out an inviting buffet for deer.

Colorful evergreen foliage lies at the heart of this combination, with layers of purple and variegated leaves framing a deep green foundation of Yewtopia® Plum Yew. Contrasting textures and plant forms add depth and intrigue to the planting. 'Cracked Ice' Heucherella subtly echoes the deep purple foliage of Purple Diamond® Semi-dwarf Loropetalum, while ‘Spider's Web’ Fatsia adds height and drama. A stunning combination that will outlast hungry deer.
