Fresh foliage is everywhere I look in the garden and it is all growing so fast with having alternating sunshine and rain. There is such a big difference in all the ferns, hostas and heucheras, in the garden since last months GBFD, kindly hosted by Christina on the 22nd of each month.
Harts tongue fern, Asplenium scolopendrium.
Matteuccia struthiopteris is outgrowing its allotted space, I will have to remove some of them, they are crowding out some of the candelabra primulas in the bog garden.
Maidenhair fern in the woodland, Adiantum venustum.
Oh dear, something has had a good nibble on my hosta.
Hosta Super Sagae is contrasting nicely with the plants around it.
Heucheras are also looking good at the moment with all their new growth.
The Japanese painted fern, Athyrium niponicum, with Hosta Snowden.
Heuchera and ferns, Athyrium niponicum and the Tatting fern, Athyrium Frizelliae in the border behind the scree. I think a couple of small hostas would look nice here too.
The Male fern, Dryopteris filix-mas.
Polystichum setiferum divisilobum.
Cyrtomium falcatum, the Japanese Holly fern.
Asplenium scolopendrium Crispum
The autumn Fern, Dryopteris erythrosora.
Ferns are so versatile, so many different shapes, colours and textures and they contrast so beautifully with Heucheras and Hostas, I think these three are definitely the stars of the foliage in the garden at the moment.
Many thanks go to Christina who gets us to look at and appreciate our foliage each month, do pay her a visit at My Hesperides Garden to see other foliage from around the world.
