Its easy to only think of perennials in terms of flowers and colour but this amazing group of plants have much more to offer. Its a case of looking at plants in a different light and appreciating their foliage and form in life and in death.
I thought I would share a few shots of some lovely foliage from the garden.
It looks great in pots and is very easy to blend with other plants. I think this species grass is much easier on the eye than many of the different cultivars of this grass. Simple is often best!
How exciting! The first crimson thistle's are emerging on Cirsium rivulare'Atropurpureum'. This great plant is perfect for naturalistic planting and associates well with grasses. Preferring a moist soil in full sun it will start to flower from early summer. Keep deadheading the spent flowers and you will be rewarded with fresh new ones.
