Foliage Follow-up is hosted by Pam at Digging and is a follow-up to Bloom Day. Everything is greening up nicely here despite the fact that we are notably behind on rainfall.

Physocarpus opulifolius 'Amber Jubilee' (Ninebark)

We have two Ninebarks in the garden. The other is 'Coppertina' and it is covered with a white powdery substance that I figure is powdery mildew. I plan to get out and do something for it later this week.

  2. You have great variety in your garden, Phillip, and you know how to set everything off. I'm not surprised considering how beautiful your old garden was.

  5. You have a gorgeous selection of conifers. The Buckthorn 'Fine Line' has been on my wish list for a while. I just love how airy it is and it has nice bark too.
