Today is Garden Bloggers’ Foliage Day when we are invited by Christina at Creating my own Garden of the Hesperides to share photos of the foliage in our gardens. A quick stroll through a thankfully wet garden (a small bit of rain overnight) revealed a few of my plants showing off their foliage today.

The variegated liriopi is stunning, does it require much irrigation during your summer? I was looking at some today at the nursery. Thanks for joining GBFD for September.
Thanks, Christina. I haven’t had any problems with the liriope waterwise…only with rabbits. The green and variegated varieties are great plants. But be careful of the silver variety…it is a thug.

Lovely contrasting texture and colour, beautiful foliage is essential in a garden!
