** FABULOUS FOLIAGE**

7 comments


At this time of the year foliage is everything, the gap between the Spring flowers and the Summer flowers, foliage will keep the garden looking colourful, here are some of my favourites……


1*SAMBUCUS*


2*PSEODOPANAX*


3*PYHSOCARPUS*


3*PODOPHYLLUM SPOTTY DOTTY*


4*PSEUDOPANAX*


5*PITTOSPORUM AND PHILADELPHUS AUREA*


6*DODONEA*


7*LEYCESTERIA*


8*PHOTINIA*


9*PHOTINIA*


10*FATSIA*


11PSEUDOPANAX*


12*FATSIA*


13*PHOTINIA AND PERSICARIA RED DRAGON*

These shrubs are the backbone of our garden, the black Sambucus are too small yet to make any impact, another month should see them treble in size…….hope you enjoyed taking another tour of our garden, see you again soon! with some more updates…..

A lovely selection of shrubs with interesting foliage.
Goodness, your Spotty Dotty is huge. Mine just has 2 small leaf sprouts, one with a flower bud in the centre.

Love your bronze Pitt, dd! I would have loved to have used some in a Bridal Bouquet last weekend! The Brides dress was tomato red with white Bloom Xth's and green foliage all over it. I made her Bouquet using all white flowers... Roses, double Freesia, Parrot Tulips, Paper Whites and some red Kangaroo Paw! Just enough to pick out the red from her dress. So far I've seen one piccie from the actual Wedding, and will say I'm very pleased with the end results. Must plant up a bronze Pitt sometime - It can come in very handy just like my bronze smoke bush does! :o)
