Hosta sieboldiana 'Elegans'

Aesculus pavia, Red Buckeye

Farfugium japonicum 'Jitsuko's Star', Leopard Plant

Hypericum, St. John's Wort

Nasturtium seedling, Trapaeolum majus 'Mahogany', one of my favorite leaves.

  1. I think there is a lot of beauty in foliage too.

  2. I like how the delicate maple leaves contrast nicely against the other, more solid leaves. It's great evidence that a plant doesn't have to have showy flowers to be prized by everyone who owns it.

  3. Oh, I love, love, love the chartreuse tracery of your Japanese maple leaves. I would love to grow hostas too, but they don't love Austin's heat and drought. I'll just enjoy the pics of yours instead.

  4. Hi there. I love the leaves of nasturtiums. I honestly really don't even care if they flower!

  5. Whole lotta foliage going on at your house. I adore Japanese maples, and although I was first won over by the reds, I am not entranced by the green ones. Aren't we lucky we can grow them?~~Dee

  6. Love that cutleaf Japanese Maple, what a beauty.
