Thank goodness our wind storm wasn't as bad as predicted or these Musa basjoo leaves would be shredded. These always stick around until our first hard frost. Some years, that means that they're still looking good through Thanksgiving; other years they're brown sooner.
Acer palmatum 'Emerald Lace' is just beginning to color up for fall.
This really wants a sunnier location. Maybe I'll get around to transplanting it this fall.
Inherited Mahonia along with the impossible to kill Petasites fragrans given to me by a friend. One small plant has taken over a huge space and each year I dig it out which seems to make it more prolific. Between this and the running bamboo, it might be easier to move than to stay here.
Davidia involucrata 'Tricolor'
Another Tropaeolum speciosum growing in a bed but this one with fasciated stems. Fun! Hope it stays for many more years.
Foliage that will be brightening the garden all winter includes Heuchera 'Forever Purple'
Euphorbia 'Ascot Rainbow'
Aloe polyphylla made it through last winter outside in a pot sheltered from rain. It'll come up on the porch this year to keep it dry.
Earlier this year, I thought my Amorphophallus konjac had died because it was so late to emerge. Last year it wintered in the greenhouse and came up much earlier. It not only finally emerged but
produced babies. Hooray!
Ain't foliage grand?
