Foliage Follow-Up in Connecticut

Spring is definitely here in my Connecticut garden and with it some amazing foliage that rivals the flowers in my garden for color and sheer excitement .

Thanks to of Pam Penick over at Digging, I have a special reason, Foliage Follow-Up, to show off Spring in Connecticut…

    • Thanks Greggo. You’re right, that salix does have not stop growth. Some years I will prune it more than once so I get a 2nd flush of new colorful foliage.

  1. Hi Debbie – I love that variegated Pagoda Dogwood (I know my wife would too). I may need to find a place for that in my ever shrinking garden.

    I also love seeing you feature Picea orientalis ‘Skylands’ – a definite favorite tree due to it’s grand form, brilliant color and brightly colored young cones. (I’m really trying to sit on my hands so that I don’t poke fun at you for stating that your spruce tree has pinecones. But apparently, I have no self control.) :^)


      • Hah, you got me. I never ‘thought’ about the word pinecone but I guess a more apt name is conifer cone. I’m still hoping for the tree, conifer for otherwise, that grows gumdrops. I’ll buy an extra for you once I find it!
