Finally the Cycad sent up 3 dozen new fronds.
It was badly damaged by winter cold.
I've added Purple Heart along a walkway
with Airplane Plant Chlorophytum comosum.
Airplane Plants are often seen in a hanging basket.
They fare well in the ground and are hardy here.
Each little leaflet will grow a new plant.
I haven't found a really good spot for these,
so they are waiting in the wagon.
In the center are red alternanthera cuttings;
they turn red in the fall.
Licorice Plant Helichrysum petiolare and
Persian Shield Strobilanthes dyerianus
Late Note: Clarifying, Licorice Plant is Helichrysum with little gray leaves.
Persian Shield is the purple Strobilanthes.
Caladiums at upper left returned from last year.
Caladiums with red veins are new this year with white Wax Begonias along a shady path.
Foliage Followup is at the suggestion of Pam/Digging.
Flowers and text are from the garden of Nell Jean at http://www.seedscatterer.blogspot.com/ in the hot, humid depths of Southwest Georgia USA where it was 103 degrees yesterday.
