Blue foliage

I'm using quite a bit of blue foliage in my new front border - I've recently planted Daniella caerulea Casa Blue  and am very pleased with it so far.  It provides a different texture to a lot of the blue-leaved plants.

Other blue foliaged plants I've planted there are Rosa glauca, Hosta Hadspen's Blue and Sedum Spectabile 'Abbeydore' which has lovely blue/grey/green foliage.

Shuttlecock ferns in school wildlife garden

Posted: 30/05/2014 at 07:20

I've got Drypteris Cristata 'The King' (aka Elvis ) and Hart's Tongue ferns in my wildlife area, as well as some with gorgeous reddish fronds (whose name I shall find in a minute or three).  They all prefer damp shade but cope with dryish shade if watered well in their first year.

Got it - the one which has reddish fronds is Dryopteris erythrosora Prolifera.
