I am admittedly a foliage girl--and by that, I mean a foliage addict. If a plant has unusual variegation, dark color, or a twist... I drool. And then scheme on how to add that plant to my collection. So I simultaneously adored Pam's idea for Foliage Follow-Up after every Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day... and dreaded the thought of posting a photo of every single plant that I wanted to feature.
So I am resolved to limiting myself to just three different plants each week. (Not counting the opening photo above--that's technically a photo showing the fuzzy stem on the spent flower of the paphiopedilum, not the awesome checkered-looking foliage. I SWEAR. ;) Here are this month's, in no particular order:
A native of Madagascar... I bought this kalanchoe beharensis at the local garden center because I love seeing it at the CBG Glasshouse when I volunteer.
sanseviera 'Twisted Sister'
I don't know which I like better, the combination of silver foliage detail and bright yellow edge... or the twisty foliage:
hoya kerrii albomarginata
I know, I showed this plant last time, too. But I'm absolutely amazed at its leaves... and I love the way it looks against the pot that the Jade Plant from H___ lives in, too:
I had to put my hand in there for one photo, to show off the size of those leaves. They're so pretty and large that they look fake!
Hope you've enjoyed my Foliage Follow-Up... and remember, you can find more fine foliage to enjoy by visiting Pam @ Digging.
