Brighten a dark corner

What type of item is this? Plant or Flower How would you describe the style of your project? Classic What are you most proud of? color echos, shape echos and contrast What advice would you give someone starting this project? I started with hostas my mom gave me and an old log. I then added contrasting color and size hostas and an elephant ear for height. I then dug ferns out of my pasture/woods to add a different texture. Lastly I added some yucca I dug out of a ditch and cannas from another family member for more texture. It needed a pop of color, so 1 cone flower from Lowes did the trick. The bed has lots of impact on a very tight budget.
