New foliage on Mahonia gracilipes.
I was sure Astelia 'Silver Shadow' was a goner after our week of winter in February, but no!
This saxifraga sends me, in a good way. Soil? We don't need no sticking soil! Maybe a quarter of this plant actually has it's roots in the ground, everything else is growing right over concrete.
I think it's Saxifraga 'Primuloides'.
Schefflera brevipedunculata, new foliage.
Syneilesis aconitifolia with Podophyllum 'Red Panda'.
Syneilesis aconitifolia with Epimedium wushanense 'Spiny Leaf Form'.
Daphniphyllum macropodum subsp. humile
And the variegated version...
Foliage is slow to emerge on the variegated gingko, but here it is!
Akebia longeracemosa 'Victor's Secret', the foliage looks much larger here than it actually is.
The containers that overwintered in the shade pavilion greenhouse are all out on the patio now. They're much easier to acclimate to the sun than the ones in the basement. Here's my Pseudopanax ferox.
Mahonia x media 'Marvel'
Quercus dentata 'Pinnatifida'
Persicaria microcephala ‘Red Dragon’ and Comptonia peregrina.
Syneilesis aconitifolia with Adiantum venustum and Adiantum x tracyi.
Podophyllum peltatum and Adiantum venustum.
More of the above, with a couple of dish planters.
Adiantum aleuticum (Western maidenhair fern) and Veratrum californicum (false hellebore).
The new fronds of Blechnum penna-marina have a nice copper/red-tinge to them.
As do the new leaves of Mahonia eurybracteata 'Indianola Silver'.
But the new fronds of Woodwardia unigemmata, the jeweled chain fern, win that contest hands down.
Every. Damn. Time.
Just a couple more. The usually dramatic patterns on the "leaves" of Agave 'Baccarat' are even more dramatic here...
And the dark foliage of Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple' is always a show-stopper.
