The beautiful bronze foliage is all I ask of Rogersia ‘Bronze Peacock’. It produced a single pink flower last year and I left it in anticipation of the promised seed head. It underwhelmed, so this year it will be “off with their heads”.
The weeping birch, Fagus sylvatica ‘Pendula Purpurea’ will turn a deeper shade of purple as time goes by.

Euphorbia ‘Excaliber’ is at its very best right now, so you will possibly forgive me for always including it in May’s Foliage Follow Up, hosted, as always, by fellow foliage worshiper Pam.
