This birdbath-turned-planter uses a mix of hostas, with some chartreuse-colored creeping jenny that spills beautifully over the edge of the planter. Notice the a low-growing evergreen at the base of the planter that adds understated textural interest that supports, but doesn't compete with the container planting. Next to Pergola!
