Accent plants punctuate the landscape. They add character to a garden, they can be a focal point or they can be used repeatedly throughout to add rhythm and cohesion. Accent plants will often be what ensures there is no low point in the garden throughout the year, shining brightly during the heat of summer and the gray of winter. Accent plants may stand out for their unusual texture, bold colours or sculptural shape. They both stand out and elevate the landscape around them. No garden should be without them.
