Survivors, Stalwarts, and Sprouters
Sempervivum 'El Toro' is both a survivor and a stalwart in my garden. I love growing these in pots!
This Coprosma got taken inside the garage on the few sub freezing days we had and came out looking happy and healthy. I've not had much luck with these wintering over for more than a few years in the ground. The foliage is sure swell!
Fatsia japonica 'Spider's Web' is a favorite of mine and also of slugs.
Trillium something or other.
More trillium and a couple of nice examples of Taraxacum officinale in the lower left and upper right.
I've got a serious crush on Podophyllums so they'll probably get their own post one of these days.
So much is happening in gardens in our region this time of the year. It's an exciting time. For even more excitement, check out Digging to see beautiful foliage from all over the world! You might bump in to Pam Penick there. Yes, THAT Pam Penick , the author, blogger, designer, host of foliage follow up, and all around talented lady! Don't be intimidated, she's very nice.
