Today is Garden Bloggers’ Foliage Day, sponsored by Christina at My Hesperides Garden. I have chosen to focus this month’s offering on just a few of the plants that are showing emerging foliage as they awaken to spring.
I like to keep a few perennials in pots on our screen porch; heucheras and hostas have done quite well for us (and it keeps the critters away from them). Heuchera ‘Cinnamon Curls’ is newly planted, and Hosta ‘Guacomole’ is just emerging from its wintry sleep on the porch.
Two years ago I planted this pot and it has come through two winters in great shape. It contains Heuchera villosa ‘Citronelle,’ Ajuga reptans ‘Mahogany,’ Lysimachia nummularia ‘Creeping Jenny,’ and Hosta x ‘Empress Wu.’
Other plants with new foliage emerging include Ligustrum sinense ‘Sunshine, Berberis thunbergii ‘Bonanza,’ Itoh peony ‘Keiko’ and ‘Heuchera ‘Caramel.’
Please visit Christina at My Hesperides Garden and see her lovely garden.
