April 2014 Foliage
The bold new leaves from Heuchera 'Miracle' are such a pleasant sight emerging and mixing with nearby hostas, autumn ferns and columbines. This beauty was a gift from fellow garden blogger Alison

|Alien looking new fronds from the Alaska Shield Fern' Polystichum setiferium 'Divisilobum'|

More splashes of color from a baby Japanese Dappled Willow. I love the color on the new spring growth. Another gift bestowed from Alison.
|Japanese Dappled Willow 'Salix Integra Hakura Nishiki'|
|Aquilega vularis 'Icy Blue'|
Finally a nod to the Pacific Northwest favorite, Red Twig Dogwood. I love the versatility of this shrub. It is perfect for damp areas yet hardy enough to withstand the summer dry spell.
