Such subtle beauty.


Bergenias and heucheras are favorites for winter pots here as they display that great color all winter long. Very exciting to see berries on your Ilex so soon. When you figure out how to get plants to look as good as they do in catalogs, please let me know your secret. I'm suspecting it has something to do with image editing:)

I love the Bergenia. I tried it in my former garden, where it was semi-successful, but I wouldn't even attempt growing it in my current garden.


That winterberry holly is cute as a button.

Beautiful foliage! It hasn't been the most impressive fall for color, but there's always a little magic here and there. Thanks for sharing these.

Be still my heart! Bergenia 'Bressingham Ruby’ is going on my lust list.

I love these fall colors. There weren't many leaves down here until today. It is raining and not only moisture in the air, leaves too.
The dreaded Berginia. Yours are always so nice and I can barely grow any. You noticed I didn't say couldn't. I have kept one alive all summer. It is now in the ground. I hope it survives the winter. I will be thrilled if it does. I have Berry Poppins also but no berries. Which shrub do you have as the pollinator? We have 'Southern Gentleman'. He is a bit too Gentlemanly.

'Mr. Poppins' is the pollinator. Both are from Bluestone Perennials which I rarely order from. I have Bergenia in a few places. Two survive nicely and the others are chewed to bits time and time again. It has taken me a long time to find a spot where they survive and are mostly left alone.
