Fab Foliage Friday

With foliage as colorful as this, who needs flowers? This zippy litle vignette at Wesley Rouse's Southbury, CT garden consists of a canopy of 'Forest Pansy' redbud (Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'), top; two big clumps of Canna 'Pretoria'; spears of a yucca, (not sure which one), and the roundy-leaved mound of Barberry 'Rosy Glow' (Berberis thunbergii 'Rosy Glow'). At lower left is an unidentified gold-leaved hosta. Anyleaves, with a technicolor grouping like this, you've got a showy spot in the garden all season long. This grouping's got it all: shape, texture and color. Foliage rules!
