With the late spring we've been having, some of the foliage in my garden is just now emerging.
I have one bed filled with hostas. Some of them have come out, the rest have not. I am waiting, a bit anxiously, to see if they will emerge. I suppose the ground is just not yet warm enough for them.
This elephant's ear looks like it's going to pop right out of the ground!
Also coming up out of the ground are the cannas. I love these red leaves. I have to wait patiently for them to emerge. It's always tempting to plant something in bare spots, until I realize those spots aren't bare after all!
The gold barberries are always slow to put on new leaves. I've learned to wait for them. The first year I had them, I thought they were all dead. Thankfully, I didn't rip them all up! It's always good to be patient.
I patiently waited for my oak leaf hydrangea to form leaves this spring, too. I worried that it might have also died, as I planted it late last year. I hope this year it settles in and puts on a lot of new growth.
No need to be patient with giant liriope. It stays evergreen.
But I'll wait patiently to see if my peony ever blooms. So far, the foliage look great!
And the lilies are showing off, even without blooms.
But I'm extra excited about the new plants added to my garden:
A new edgeworthia is just now leafing out.
And a new hakone grass is thrilling to see, even as small as it is. I hope one day it will be big and beautiful.
I just have to be patient.
