This Week In My Garden

I'm joining Outdoor Wednesday over at A Southern Daydreamer again this week.
Check out all the beauty Mother Nature has to offer.

It's about texture, aroma and color.

Gunnera tinctoria, one of my favorite plants with leaves that have
fabulous texture and can reach 5' across.

Melianthos major has interesting very aromatic leaves.

Phlomis fruiticosa - Jerusalem Sage has wonderful gray-green
velvety foliage that is also very aromatic.

Osteospermum - African Daisy

Lavatera maritima - Tree Mallow

Japanese Maple - 'Atropurpureum'

Ajuga reptans - 'Catlin's Giant'
(background) Hylotelephium erythrostictum - Sedum 'Variegatum'
(far background) Umbrella Grass and Vinca major

Ajuga reptans - 'Alfredda' Carpet Bugle

Calycanthus occidentalis - California Allspice

Cistus x purpureus - Orchid Rock Rose

Cistus x aguilarii - 'Maculatus' Rock Rose

Pelargonium cordifolium - Heart Leaved Geranium

I have a large collection of succulents that give great color and texture
to the garden throughout the year.

The Aloes start blooming during January and February and can last for months.

I hope to see you again next week in my garden.
Thanks for stopping by.
