That is what I thought about "My Monet" weiglea until I got one .. and then I ended up with a total of three of the little nippers .. go figure ?
This however is polemonium reptans "Stairway to Heaven" creeping Jacob's Ladder. I had no intention on buying it .. but the call of a sale price does something to my brain that I can't quite control ..a slave to a plant that is a bit quirky and on sale too ?
Who am I kidding ? .. and in the first picture .. doesn't that one strap leaf from my day lily become annoying in the shot .. it bugs me ! it really isn't a pointer I'm using here folks ; )
I can't say enough about how black mulch really pops plants out, especially these types of colours.
See the pink tinge on the new growth ? .. so delicate and pretty .. I would say almost "GIRLIE" !!
Now here is another almost quirky one .. Pinot Gris heuchera .. planted in two different sun value spots .. this one has strong morning light and afternoon shade ..
This one has filtered light and stays more on the pink peach scale of colour .. such a difference and yet the same plant .. amazing right ?
I finally picked up astilbe "Colour Flash" .. a friend of mine said I really should have at least one .. and now seeing it I wished I had grabbed two (yes ... they were on sale, but I just wasn't sure .. damnation !!)
It is one shocking astilbe and I haven't even seen the flowers .. who cares, this foliage is fantastic !
Almost looks like Autumn foliage ........ ehhhh ??? hehehehe
