Striking Plant Combination in Fairfield Landscape

I took this picture last year in one of the gardens we designed and installed in Fairfield, CT.  When designing a new landscape I try to position plants so their colors and textures can play off each other.  Most flowers only last so long you know? At the time, this was a new plant combination I had never tried before in the landscape.  Red leaves of Euphorbia polychroma ‘Bonfire’ contrast great with the spiky leaves of Liriope muscari ‘Variegata’.  The combination should work in Fairfield County and southern Litchfield County gardens.  Any farther north and the Liriope might need some protection.  Give it a try in your landscape and let me know what you think.
