|Try a Forsythia shrub under-planted with Pachysandra terminalis for a finished looking spring combination.|
Many people have Forsythia bushes, but adding in the green of Pachysandra terminalis* (also known as Japanese Pachysandra) or another evergreen ground cover really sets off its yellow flowers in early spring. Another option might be Vinca major (Periwinkle vine), which would flower purple at the same time the Forsythia is clothed in yellow.
