    This is an excellent reminder that foliage lasts far longer than flowers and that we should plan our gardens with foliage in mind. (Some plant IDs would be great so we know what the combinations are.)

    Absolutely Douglas, when gardening is smaller spaces it allows people to have interest and contrast all year long.

    Beautiful @The Black Thumb Gardener. I too would like to know the names so I can check if they'd work in our zone.

    Becky, If you follow the link above the pictures you can see the article those pictures were used in. I was fortunate enough to have Karen Chapman write the article. She has a book coming out soon focused on foliage combinations and is also a landscape container designer. The pictures are hers and you can see find more great pictures on here website which is linked to in the article.
