Persian Shield has the richest foliage colors in my garden.
Setcreasea is another deep purple, but the leaves are all one color.
Tom calls it Purple Queen; I call it Purple Heart.
As it grows, the violas will be leaving and
Setcreasea makes a border, accented with Chartreuse alternanthera.
Purple Alternanthera is my fav to grow around a pillar rose like Reine des Violettes.
As it grows, it becomes almost vine-like.
Not a foliage plant, glorious purple daylily. Heirloom, No Name.
Flowers and text are from the garden of Nell Jean at www.seedscatterer.blogspot.com in the hot, humid depths of Southwest Georgia USA where the fragrance of Magnolias floats on the breeze and whippoorwills call from the woods at night. Join us in a glass of iced Ruby Tea, dark and barely sweet.
