Foliage Follow-Up March 2012

On the 16th of each month Pam over at Digging asks us to remember how important foliage is in our gardens. I just love unusual foliage; both in texture and color. Currently, in Houston the entire city is covered in yellow pine tree pollen, so if some of these leaves look a little dusty that’s why. Luckily we did have a heavy dew last night that help clean a few leaves, but not all. These photos were taken today in my garden.
Parrot’s Feather (Myriophyllum aquaticum) this was a recent addition to my pond. We purchased this just last weekend. I love it!

Spotted Laurel ‘Aucuba japonica’

Here is last month's Foliage Follow-Up.


  1. I really like your new acquisition, the Parrot’s Feather. A wonderful selection of foliage!

  2. Your tropicals are way ahead of ours.
    You have some beautiful foliage.

  3. Grande diversité de feuillages magnifiques avec de belles couleurs et des nervures très originales. Cela donne des photos magnifiques avec beaucoup de subtilités à découvrir.
