Combine annuals with established foundation plants to give the landscape new life and a fresh look. At this stunning Pacific Northwest home, a different selection of annuals each year changes the look of the landscape. Bold tropicals such as elephant ears (Colocasia), pineapple lily (Eucomis) and rice-paper plant (Tetrapanax papyiferus) thrive in the heat of summer.

Foundation plantings such as heavenly bamboo (Nandina domestica) and coral bells (Heuchera) provide year-round color. A large specimen of pineapple guava (Feijoa sellowiana) with evergreen silver leaves hides an exterior air conditioning unit. Hot-colored plants sprinkled throughout the entry garden lead the eye to the bright red door, connecting the house to the landscape. Designed by Courtney Downing, Green Artisans
