I thought I'd show several foliage plants that look good right now. I'd like to have included some Hostas but they are looking a little ragged at this time of year. They all have a tropical look to them and the first two can be grown in pots. The first is Bear's Breech. It has been in the same spot for about 10 years and has never bloomed for me. The foliage looks good in the spring until about July when the summer heat just beats it down even in almost full shade. It recovers in September and looks good until the first hard freeze.
