Plant Combinations: Tried and True Classics

Whether your gardening style is sheared and formal or rustic and rugged, there are few plant pairings more endearing than hydrangea and boxwood.

This classic combination is a study in opposites: billowing blooms and flamboyant foliage meet order and composure. Plant Baby Gem™ Boxwood in tidy rows for a formal appearance. In woodland settings, use boxwood sparingly to balance masses of White Wedding® Hydrangea. Ground the planting with a bed of White Blush EnduraScape™ Verbena.
