Celebrate Yellow, Green, Pink
When I began to plant the gardens here, about 5 years ago, I had an extreme fondness for colorful foliage. Oh, the flowers are always appreciated, but to find plants with leaves in different colors and textures was my "assignment." I was on a pretty tight budget, so Hosta "grab bags" from Walmart, small shrub and tree starts from local growers, plant swaps with friends, and planting seeds of some perennials helped me create the variety I wanted...I just had to add patience!
