No theme again this month, just some random shots of foliage in my garden.
Yucca 'Margaritaville' breathes a sigh of relief that the huge Grevillea victoriae that once was encroaching on it gave up the ghost this year. The new menace is Romneya coulteri which is filling in every empty piece of dirt (not really soil) in the parking strip. This year some will definitely get transplanted. Wish me luck.
One of the bamboos that got cut to the ground a month ago has done a beautiful job of sending up new growth.
This is filling in nicely and even battling the violets well!
Work goes slowly on arranging the Danger Gardenette because there are so many other garden jobs to be done right now.
Will we be staying inside this year or allowed to go out and play?
Variegated Ananas(pineapple) from Garden Sphere has put on some nice growth since getting rid of it's ugly scale foes.
My favorite variegated Ginkgo.
I made the mistake of cutting a branch off because it had only solid green leaves one year and I was worried that it was reverting. Time has taught me that with this particular tree, some years it's entirely variegated, other years mostly green. this leaf can't quite decide.
I didn't really like Hosta 'Praying Hands' but heard a speaker say that growing it in a pot changed his mind about it. This one has been in this pot for several years and has always grown straight up which was okay but there are so many other gorgeous hostas that this was about to be given away. Then, this year it did this gentle arching out thing and won my heart. On the other hand, maybe it's just pot bound, dry and wilting with thirst.
What foliage is catching your eye this month?
