Begin with the early spring bloom of the Rhododendron and let the color meander all through the season using perennials like Geranium, Bleeding Heart, Astilbe, Daylily, and Monarda. Shrubs like Hydrangea provide summer bloom color, structure, and an interesting winter effect when the spent blooms remain. Evergreen Japanese Yew supply additional winter effect and lend that soft green background for more showy plant material.

Don't forget to add leaf color and texture in the shade; in this instance the Coral Bells, Astilbe, Hosta, Fern, Geranium, and Rhododendron fill out plant schedule. Lastly, a favorite ornamental Burning Bush Tree gives upright form, whimsy, and fall color to this shaded front entry.
