More color

Punica granatum

The new growth on the pomegranate is also an eye opener when you really force yourself to look at it, however familiar the red-edged bronze register. But it's not quite on the level of that rose. Or of Zamia splendens:

I need to add more red in my garden. Everything's so green, it's kind of boring.

Chuck, have you been reading garden magazines again?

My point is that you don't need to add "foliage plants" for color because "boring" green plants in fact supply lots of it, if you can only make yourself look.

But you have to get really close. I would at least like to have gray/silver, which I can get from numerous natives.

That pomegranate really grows in straight-angled rays, doesn't it. Did you top it?

We got it bareroot last year, so all the branches were cut back, including the top.
