April Foliage Follow-Up
Since Pam posted about her yellow-striped jungle for this month's Foliage Follow Up, I thought it was only fair for me to lead off with my yellow-variegated iris foliage. It really pops out of the garden right now, surrounded by the caramel tones of carex buchanii, grounded by 'Little Fingers' sedum, and softened by the deep, dark, fine foliage of bronze fennel.
More caramel coloring--this time tinged with peach--helps this heuchera warm up the emerging silver artemisia:
Sea kale leaves turn a light, powdery blue throughout the summertime. But when they emerge, they're a shockingly beautiful combination of deeper blue leaves and purple veins:
With 'Diablo' purple ninebark leaves, it's completely the opposite. Instead of getting lighter as the season goes on, they emerge as an almost coppery combination of green and purple... and then turn a deep, dark purple by the time summer begins.
