This is the place for tropical & temperennial plants with spectacular foliage to show themselves. As you can see, leaves can be as showy and diverse as any group of flowers, explaining why foliage is "all the rage". These are definetly worth consideration for the garden, alone in a pot, or any combination which calls for that "something special". While only a partial list, to be sure, it includes some of our favorites, as well as the outright bizarre...
An upright fountain of apricot-tone leaves offer a truly unique alternative for adding structure & color in partly shaded containers. Provide bright light or part sun (avoid hot afternoon sun which may scorch the plant). Water regularly, making sure to maintain water in the "cup" of the plant at all times. Grown indoors, or kept from one year to the next, this RARE plant can get quite large (3 - 4'), so plan accordingly.
Yes - quadricolor! Each of the lime green, dark green, and lemon yellow leaves are edged with translucent red thorns which glow in the sunlight. This ideal container plant is much smaller growing than many agaves, and freely produced pups for the generous gardener. Provide full sun, minimal feeding, and allow the soil to dry completely between waterings for the best performance. Super easy to grow!
Agave 'Joe Hoak'
This agave speaks volumes with its subtly diffused variegation of mint, cream, and pale yellow, all overcast with frosty silver. Truly unusual color for an agave, it can provide the most striking contrast for both deep and vibrant colors in the sunny garden. This also makes for a stunning specimen indoors. Agave should be treated like other succulents & cactus, with the low maintenance of very sparse feeding, and allow the soil to become dry before watering.
We offer these easy to grow plants in an ever-changing variety. For the most part, they are great bright to low-light plants, but consider that the lighter the leaf color - the more light it will need to thrive, but always avoid direct sun. In bright light, keep them evenly moist, but the lower the light (such as in winter), the dryer the soil should be before watering.
Disturbingly bizarre, yet curiously enigmatic, this smaller scale elephant ear is a RARE sight, even for the collector!

Alocasia macrorrhiza 'New Guinea Gold'
From Papua, New Guinea, this RARE plant is truly an enigma to the world of botany. Without explanation, yellow spotted variegation appears and disappears, at will, without ever seeming to revert! Even when not present, the unusually thick, glossy green leaves, held on rigid upright stems are attractive, especially given the yellow veins and stems. Provide shade. Plants grow to 6'.
Much persued, but rarely viewed, this variegated elephant ear is a RARE treasure! One would be hard pressed to find a more boldly variegated plant! Leaves may exceed 2' in length, with plants maturing 4 - 6'. Provide shade or part shade.
