Only one Neoregelia promises a bloom soon.
Cycads have brand new foliage. Behind the one at left is a small Brug.
I spread Persian Shield around like Marmalade. These are returning from roots.
They play well together, Setcreasea and Strobilanthes.
Around a large stone, grows Ebony Spleenwort and one the stone, Resurrection Fern. Nearby is a red Daylily. Crocosmia, a thug, marches right in to get pulled.
I keep adding more and more Cannas, an easy tropical look that returns easily from roots.
Two more tropicals that return from roots: Lemon Grass and Variegated Shell Ginger. They make a quicker show if pieces are wintered in the greenhouse. I intend to buy more Alpinia.
This tough succulent endures the worst winters here. Many plants are lost to squirrels, who love to chew the leaves when water is scarce.
Most of my favorite foliage plants are common. I like to try to display them in uncommon ways.
