Head feeling a little woozy after over-indulging in the glut of blossoms in yesterday’s GBBD posts? Pam has come up with the perfect tonic to set you straight. Here are a few of mine before you skip on over there to see what she has up her sleeve for July.
Ceanothus impressus ‘Victoria’
A prostrate ceanothus…that’s all I know about it
Ceanothus x ‘Blue Jeans’ By having several of the California lilacs, the bloom time spreads over a long time, but what I really like about them is their shiny, year-round foliage: a little different on each variety, but still recognizable.
Cotinus ‘Purple Robe’
Ginko biloba (still a mere baby)
Tetrapanex papyriferus ‘Steroid Giant’ Giant? Hardly! Will this ever become the towering grove of mammoth leaves I envisioned (and was warned about) when I planted it in 2009? Oh well, they are pretty little things, just not what I expected.
I keep dividing my Phlomus russeliana. The new divisions are foliage plants for a while. The leaves are just a little bit fuzzy.
I could go on and on when it comes to foliage, but must remember that old show biz adage: “always leave ‘em wanting more”. If you really still want more, pop on over to Digging.
