I am a foliage fan fanatic .. flowers are nice but they pass along fairly quickly .. foliage on the other hand sticks by you until the bitter end of the season .. most times .. and you have to respect that don't you ?
Here you see a monster Bittersweet vine that has eaten its arbor up .. but wow .. talk about green on green and the scent it had this year was totally amazing : )
Yes .. there are some flowers there .. bulbs .. Alliums of the larger kind coming to an end with the Bulb Circle .. it was gorgeous but now the work horse of the garden "FOLIAGE" has taken over !
I have indulged my cravings with acquiring different brunnera, heuchera and heucherella all soft spots for me .. plus my first ever pulmonaria "Moonshine" ..
Yes Korean Yellow Wax Bells .. meadowsweet, campanula, hosta, heuchera, tiarella, lily .. it is one heck of a mix and I love the utter foliage chaos !
Echeveria 'Perle Von Nurnberg' .. how "foliage" can you get ? it is too beautiful to believe isn't it ?
Provence lavender (not in bloom .. see ? .. but still lovely) paired with hosta-in-a-pot !
Fennel and dwarf dill .. parsley flat leaf and curly ... Pineapple sage with that magical scent of pineapple !! not seen is the chocolate mint which smells exactly like chocolate MINT !
OK .. a euphorbia .. maybe Diamond Frost .. it wasn't on the tag .. but it edged its way in ;-)
Foliage does it for me .. with a dotting of flowers .. but it is the way of the foliage that is the backbone of my garden no question about that !
Jodi .. I will let you know about my Colourflash astilbe !!
