Fab Foliage Friday



Silver spur flower (Plectranthus argentatus) is a tender perennial whose fuzzy, silvery leaves make a handsome addition to most any planting. It's a winner in containers and in the ground. Peter Wooster used one to brighten a galactic cloud of tiny white flowers in his Roxbury, CT garden.

Great idea for a post! Keep the Fab Foliage Fridays coming.
(Fun Alliteration too.)

Aerie-el, yes, if you haven't noticed I am a sucker for alliteration, or should I say that I actually always admire awesome alliteration.

I plan to keep up the foliage thing for sure--good plants and good garden combos which rely on foliage for effect. As we discussed before, LEAVES RULE!
