Open border plan
Turn a partially shady corner into an eye-catching feature with this pink combination based around a superb star magnolia. This border has been designed so you will have a procession of colour throughout the warmer months of the year.
Planting tips:The Magnolia will be the first plant into flower in spring and produces wonderful spidery blooms in the palest pink. The fronds of the Dryopteris will make an attractive feature as they unfurl and will be followed by a number of pink-flowering plants through the summer and into the autumn.
You will need a 1.5 x 1.5m corner bed.
