Foliage Follow-up

Foliage Follow-Up comes right after Bloom Day. Started by Pam at Digging it’s a wonderful idea to show foliage, bark, and seedheads. Head over to Pam’s to see some of Mother Nature’s most beautiful creations. And here are some of the foliage/seedheads that I have in my garden.

The leaves of the Yellow-Vein Eranthemum/Pseuderanthemum reticulatum growing near my front door. It’s an evergreen shrub with green and creamy yellow leaves. The blooms are tiny. They’re white and speckled with a bit of pink.

An arrangement of common foliage plants with ornamental grass and aquatic plants.

A plant whose name I do not know. The flowers are tiny and almost unnoticeable but the leaves are a rich burgundy. It’s a shrub that grows in a large pot.

Drenched with rain is this passion fruit vine in my backyard.

From the vegetable market comes this edible fern/diplazium esculentum. This fern is very popular in our region.

I got some seeds of the Datura/Thorn Apple from the wild at the beginning of this year. Now the seedheads are forming.

Is that a pupa? That’s what my son asked me when I showed him this picture. It’s interesting to see the seedheads forming on the Malabar spinach/Basella alba. This variety has smaller leaves and they sprout everywhere. But once the seeds ripen, the birds love to feed on them.

  1. What a great variety, all so very different! My favorites are the two first ones. I love the yellow on the leaves and the way the sun is shining on them. and the aquatic ones. the ones in the pot almost look like lentils.

    As beautifully shown, Kanak, foliage sustains us as much as flowers. Happy days 🙂

    That edible fern is very interesting. We don’t get it here.

      Padma, I thought that this fern was only available in the north east but checking out Wiki, I found out that it’s popular throughout south east Asia and Oceania. It’s also grown as a houseplant.

    Kanak I adore foliage and yours is just so different compared to what I’m used to. That seed head looks so unusual.
