A few from my foliage collection!

These are my eternal garden companions. They never fail me, nor are they fair weather type. Hardy and resistant, they make pretty combinations when arranged with flowers and other plants.

  1. The 3rd picture - I REALLY REALLY LOVE THAT!!! is it planted in a hanging basket?

    Is that mint in the 2nd pic from the bottom?

    I like this - Green, green, green but all different tones.

  5. Beautiful foliage! I have the one in the second picture only. I like the foliage that's in the first picture the most... the green shade look special and the pattern that's formed in the centre made the foliage attractive.

  6. Hello Urban Green, it´s so nice to see how you take care of your plants and show the love you have for them. I´m so happy that so, so many women around the world are loving nature and taking care of it.

  8. Just love the foliage on these. I've grown at least two of these as houseplants. Foliage is just as important as flowers, and can be just as pretty!

  10. That's the best thing about foliage plants...eternal garden companions! Blooms last only for a while. But these go on and on. Pretty photos. The third one---what is it called? I don't have that. Now I'll be looking around....:)

  13. Urban green...your plants are refreshing to the eyes and spirits. Is that the artillery fern in a hanging basket? I have never seen them like that. I usually use them as borders in my plant beds.

  17. Plant no.3 shows up as Pilea microphylla or Artillery Plant on searching the net. Not sure though.
