I love "overplanting" groundcovers. They weave together to create an interesting carpet of different colors and textures. However, it's important the plants have similiar growing requirements (light, soil, moisture) and spreading habits so the more aggressive plant(s) don't overtake the slower growing ones.
This is a shade garden and receives only a couple hours of direct sunlight per day.
Subdued chrysanthemum in shade garden
This bright striped chrysanthemum began life as a florist's mum. I always break off stalks and stick them into the garden wherever I have a vacant spot. They take root so easily. I've noticed that many flowers, certainly including this one, change color depending on the exposure. This was much brighter -- almost gold and orange -- last year in the sunny garden, but here in the shade it has bloomed yellow with coral stripes.
