Foliage Follow Up – June 2018
A day late but am joining in with Pam’s Foliage Follow Up meme. I thought I would share some photos of my front garden which is in transition from its spring bulbs to late summer perennials. However, I am thrilled at how much texture and interest there is at the moment just from the foliage.
There are numerous grasses including Stipa tenuissima, Molinia ‘Skyracer’, and Calamagrostis ‘Overdam’. The verticals are added to with Crocosmia ‘Lucifer’ and another bronze leaved crocosmia which I don’t think I have ever known the name of, as well as a Phormium.
The horizontal leaves are made up of sedums, geraniums, euphorbia, rudbeckia, persicaria and asters. Currently there is a pale chartreuse glow from the Alchemilla mollis. Airiness added with the bronze fennel (Foeniculum vulgare purpureum). The structure is provided by trees and shrubs including two different Sorbus, Grevillea‘Canberra Gem’, Grevillea victoriae, Corokia cotoneaster and Cotinus ‘Grace’.
