Friday Favorites June

Fabulous Foliage

This month I want to share with you some of my favorite plants that have beautiful foliage.

Geranium phaeum ‘Samobor’

Geranium phaeum ‘Samobor’ – Perennial geranium with beautiful purple markings on the leaves.

Hosta

Hosta ‘June’ with pretty blue edging.

Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla mollis)

Ladys Mantle has pretty scalloped leaves that hold water droplets after the rain. Long ago people actually collected the droplets to make healing potions.

Japanese Painted Fern (Athyrium niponicum)

Japanese Painted Fern. Its beauty speaks for itself.

Barrenwort (Epimedium perralderianum)

Barrenwort (Epimedium perralderianum) – One of the first to arrive in the spring. Beautiful heart-shaped leaves with red markings.

Dark foliage Dahlia

I bought this at a roadside vendor. The tag just says Dahlia so I don’t know the variety. The flower is really pretty but it was the dark foliage that caught my eye.

Stonecrop Sedum

And finally, for the succulent lover, Sedum ‘Maestro’ a gorgeous blue-green with purple edges & stems and it is hardy to my zone 6a garden.

Happy Friday Everyone! Enjoy the Weekend!
