For January's Foliage Follow-up Day sponsored by Pam Penick at Digging I'm giving a tour of the garage. The garage? January is challenging because much of the foliage in the yard is brown, tan, or non-existent. It's been cold for San Antonio, dipping down to freezing or just below for several nights in a row and my tender foliage plants have been sent to the garage for a few weeks. We'll visit them there to see how they're doing.
The sanseverias, strelitzia, and the spathiphyllum are waiting patiently by the window for better days in the spring.
This group on the floor awaits warmer winter days when I open the door and slide them outside for a few hours. I've been collecting these vintage white clay planters for several years.
Pretty nice pattern detail on Ctenanthe which was purchased on sale last spring and added a nice spot of pattern to the front yard all summer.
The one foliage surprise is outside by the detached garage where this Brugmansia 'Candida Double White' is still green against the north wall which is protected by the house. Other than the one branch which is more exposed to cold and has lost its leaves this seems to be a good spot so I'll consider moving more brugs to this bed in the spring.
That's the foliage report from north San Antonio on this January 2013 Foliage Follow-up day. To see more foliage from a variety of gardens be sure to visit Digging.
