Love Me Leaf Me (or ‘we Don’ Need No Stinkin Blooms)


Don’t get me wrong, I mean ya’ll all know how much I love me some hydrangea, and camellias and roses…yes and ..annual flowers. But sometimes justthe comely shape of a leaf and sheer lusciousness of a leaf color can be downright seductive. The rugged texture of branch and trunk gives us the feelingtimelessness in the garden surrounding us, strong and enduring. When designinga garden these features often come into their own as the design matures, it isthat ahhh moment that gives a designer pure pleasure. This is what you experience wander through elegant botanical gardens that make youfeel that indescribable harmony with that which surrounds you. Nature almost balanced, and yet untamed.
What do you grow thatisn’t about the bloom at all?

    These are lovely, but here in the far north, coleus is an annual.

      @Rhonda S for us too in north Georgia Rhonda. We only have them for the summer months, but the sure do perform beautifully and fully when they are around! You can over winter them as cuttings pretty easily. I think it is one of the first plants I learned to propagate by cuttings.

    I must confess @No search results.Donna Dixon, I didn't know they were easy to propagate. I've always avoided them for the simple reason that they were annuals. I have something of a brown thumb--I can grow petunias, but I've killed many a delphinium and nerve plant. So maybe I'll give them a shot--they are always suggested for color in a shade garden. Thanks for the feedback!
