|I recently purchased (3) each of spirea Shirobana and baptisia Sparkling Sapphires. I hadn't planted either one before. I was going to plant the baptisia in the rear (since it is expected to grow taller and be somewhat leggy), and the spirea in front of it. However, I just love the leaves on the baptisia, even sans blooms. Should I trade their places? I don't want to overshadow the spirea by doing so.
Your opinion is appreciated.

| I would put the baptisia in the back. They do get tall. I think some of the leaves would still be visible. Is this one of the small spireas? I've had some that did get rather tall, but they can be pruned. Your decision! I do love baptisia, I have two.
These are both native ones.
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
