For Foliage Follow-up today I'd love to show you my halls decked out in evergreens for the holidays, but they are all fake. Yes, I use artificial greenery because it's impossible to keep evergreen wreaths and roping green in our warm winter climate. I've tried making my own wreaths of juniper, rosemary, and boxwood from the garden but a few days in our 80+ December weather renders them droopy and brown.
While searching for ideas using native greenery I found photos of interesting tillandsia arrangements and wreaths. That is one plant we have plenty of in South Texas. Tillandsia recurvata grows all over our live oak trees.
There's also great texture in the lichen on the branches and twigs.
I wove in a few lichen covered twigs. The gray-green tillandsia and various lichen are fascinating
Ribbons and bows in the form of succulents. Agave vilmoriana along with a nameless agave pup. Of course I couldn't resist adding a cluster of Donkey ears kalanchoe pups and Aloe 'Blue Elf'.
This one should last quite a while and provide plenty of cheer through the winter.
