This has been a good year for ferns and other foliage plants, cool with lots of moisture. Along the shady west side of the house, Lady Ferns (Athyrium felix-femina) and Wild Ginger (Asarum canadensis) are looking happy.
Here’s some more Wild Ginger with an unknown fern.
Merrybells (Uvularia grandiflora) makes a nice groundcover after blooming if it is in a moist, shady spot.
And Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum) is the first of the Geraniums to stop blooming, but I like the foliage.
Palm Sedge (Carex muskingumensis) grows quite vigorously in my garden. I like the texture. The seed heads are not yet ripe here.
And the Ostrich Ferns (Matteuccia struthiopteris), of course, in the front foundation planting. The foliage of the Bleeding Heart is still looking nice, and still displays a flower here and there.
The Roof Iris (Iris tectorum) are done blooming, but the sword-like foliage is nice, and I think will be nicer as it fills in.
Oh, I should say that these are all pictures taken with my cell phone. Foliage Follow-Up is hosted by Pam at Digging. Thanks Pam!
