First it was the flowers and now it's the turn of the foliage as we join Pam Penick of Digging as she hosts the Foliage Follow-Up, a celebration of foliage plants that fascinates this month in the garden.
Here's a few of ours...
|Like butterflies rising from the ground - Jeffersonia diphylla|
|Usually we grow plants mainly for their foliage and the flowers are just a bonus. This one I'd say 50/50, I equally like both foliage and its flowers - Scopolia carniolica|
|Four foliage in one photo - Kniphofia northiae, Trachycarpus princeps, Sedum spathulifolium 'Purpureum' and 'Cape Blanco'|
|This photo reminds me of a mob of meerkats...|
|Onoclea sensibilis, the sensitive fern sprouting wherever it wants, in between other plants, which we like!|
|And so glad this wasn't badly damaged by the fire last year...|
|Kalopanax septemlobus - we have several leaf forms in the garden and this one is what I unofficially call a 'Fatsia' leaf form|
