foliage follow-up

Oxydendrum arboreum

Oxydendrum arboreum, Lily-of-the-Valley Tree, Sourwood…call it what you will, this tree deserves a place of honor.

Sedum ‘Angelina’

When there is much ground to cover, a vigorous spreader like the sedum ‘Angelina’ is much appreciated. I love the way she weaves her way through other foliage and catches the light.

Ricinus communis

The new leaves as they emerge on the Castor Bean are bright red and shiny. As they mature, they deepen to burgundy wine, but keep their sheen. I adore this plant.

Euphorbia ‘Ascot Rainbow’

The most recent addition to my growing collection of Euphorbias is ‘Ascot Rainbow’. Like ‘Helena’s Blush’, which I lost last winter, it is the foliage that puts on the real show on this plant.

Visit Pam for a feast of foliage and links to even more leaves.

    I came straight from Ledge and Gardens’ Bloom Day post, and she was showing off her ‘Ascot’ euphorbia too! I covet this plant–so beautiful! Your sourwood is very nice too.

    Pam~I have seldom met a Euphorbia I didn’t like. Thanks for stopping by.

    Oh Ricki your Castor Bean looks so gorgeous!!!

  4. ricki Says:

    Loree~I will plant lots more of these next year. I bet the gophers will leave them alone.

    Happy Holidays Ricki,
    I have just finished touring through your lovely site — I love the pictures and really enjoyed the tours you chose to give. I will be checking in more often.

    Brook~Hi Brook! So glad you joined the conversation. That q at the end of your name threw me off last time and I responded as if you were a stranger. Sorry about that. We have so many new ways to keep track of each other…where will you tell of your Alaskan adventures?
