Fab Foliage Friday



A tapestry of foliage textures lines a walkway at Wesley Rouse's Southbury, CT garden. The purplish blades of a pineapple lily (Eucomis comosa 'Sparkling Burgundy') and the silvery spears of an agave add sharply contrasting spikey notes to the greenish mounds and mats that make up most of the scene.

I love the terra cotta amphora, too. That really adds a wonderful color and texture contrast.

Chandramouli-Patience is a good thing, a gardening a fine teacher in that subject.

Hi Philip-As far as I'm concerned, you can almost never go wrong using a cool, oversized pot as a focal point in a garden setting.

Fab foliage keeps your garden looking great for longer with flowers as extra bonus. Thanks for sharing the fine examples.
