Look to the leaf, artfully combined with other garden plants, to achieve textural depth and season-extending color not possible with flowers or grasses alone. A stunning array of shapes, sizes, textures, and colors awaits the gardener eager to experiment with foliage. Its variety and durability will bring out the best in your home landscape.About the Author:
