Too much colour for me Verd....
I wouldn't be without variagted plants myself - but I'm less flowery and more foliagey in my current garden - lots of shade. I find it stops the garden all ending up the same mid-green come July. I use hedera 'clotted cream', various euonymous and aucuba japonica to bring light to deep shady corners, Not so keen on variagated herbaceous, though there are a few that I don't find too unnatural, like hostas, grasses, irises... I've got a brilliant bugle too, pale minty green with white edges and very pale blue flowers. Its taking over the world, so if it's sick, it's probably just as well. I also use the variagated ground elder, though only in confined areas. Personal hate - variagated foliage with pink flowers. Pink goes so much better with proper green, gold or red foliage IMHO. And on the theme of unnatural things... PINK DAFFODILS! I mean, really? If I ever see one my eyeballs may implode. Can these people not wait a month for a nice tulip? Saying that, pink lily of the valley doesn't bother me. Ho hum. Each to their own and all that. Except for pink daffs. Ha... I did a rant! Bx
I will admit I'm not usually a fan of variegated plants although some hollies and ivies are gorgeous, and I'm lusting after one of thesehttp://www.mailordertrees.co.uk/Cotoneaster+'Juliette'+(Cotoneaster+Tree)/0_caaa102_caaa118/PRAA104.htm
As for variegated shouty trousers, how about these?
These ones - you'll have to click on the link as they won't save to my laptop
The first was tricky had to save and upload the 2nd just a link.
Firefox with web developer extensions can get anything
Thanks Blackest - think the first will look better in my garden than the second
aye the 2nd is 6 foot, could be too tall, (what kind of site was that) I thought it was supposed to be selling clothes but gives the models height?
Useful information when buying trousers Blackest, especially for my son in law who is 6'6.5" - not that he would wear anything like that!
Now if I could have the first one reach 6 ft up against the fence that'd look great
Haven't you heard? Punkdoc's starting his own range-it'll be in 'branches' of all good high street stores later this year..
Actually I think we might be on to something...has anyone got Gok's phone number?
Brum..do you have Hostas...never!
AuntB-with you on the pink flowers on variegated foliage.
