I’m going to assume Tony Avent won’t mind if we borrow his Plant Delights photo so people know the bold-foliage thing you’re talking about is, the Ligularia. Wow! I can’t believe I don’t have this plant (though I have several other Ligularia). I am JEALOUS. http://www.plantdelights.com/Catalog/Current/Detail/04846.html Generally Ligularia like moist soils, so I’d just be conscious of that and make sure their needs are met, especially in the first year or so when they are acclimating. Soil under a pine can be very dry and it can be a challenge for plants who like it a little more hospitable, at least at first. Also, be cautious with Japanese anemones, who don’t always play nice with the other kids, and eventually run all over everybody like naughty thugs. I like all the plants you are suggesting, just think it would be good to give the anemones room to do their thing.
