Fab Foliage Friday

In spring, a man's fancy turns to...bananas? Mine does anyway. Soon as the weather warms up, I think about exhuming my bananas from their winter quarters in the cool dark basement and bringing them up into the light, so they can start growing like crazy. It doesn't take much--some heat, light and water, and they're off to the races.

And what's not to like about the burgundy splotched foliage of Musa sumatrana 'Zebrina'? As Birdboylikes to say, "I don't like it, I LOVE it!" Especially with tropical smoke bush (Euphorbia cotinifolia).
