Surrounded by a sea of Persicaria ‘Lance Corporal’, Dryopteris erythrosora, or Autumn Fern, is looking the best it’s ever looked.
The things I came away from the ANLD tour wanting were all foliage plants. Here’s one: Miscanthus ‘Frosty Morn’.
And another: Selanginella kraussiana, or Pincushion Spikemoss.
The Kalanchloe bahariensis that I’ve had for a long time is looking kind of leggy, so I bought a new one to fill in. It is labeled the same, but is wartier than the big one. Any opinions on that?
These berries are what attracted me to Berberis jamesiana. I happened upon one at Dancing Oaks at just this stage, not knowing that they would eventually turn red. Now I cut some for bouquets when they turn this pearlescent pale yellow with just the faintest blush.
Shame on Portland Nursery for failing to identify this beyond “succulent”, but bless them for continuing to surprise us with new ones.
I gushed over the lady ferns at the Cecil & Molly Smith Garden, and I think that’s what’s volunteering here and there around R&R Ranch (correct me if I’m wrong). This lady is welcome to invite all of her friends.
I adore the shapely leaves of Macleaya cordata, or Plume Poppy. Flowers? What flowers?
The prostrate sequoia is starting to go vertical. What’s up with that?
R cut away all the suckers coming up from the base of Eucalyptus pauciflora ssp niphophila, so now we can see the silken trunk.
Thanks again, Pam, for inviting us to gush over foliage every month.
