August 15 Beyond Green: Colorful Foliage in the Garden

Next time you hit the local garden center, think leaves! Plants with colorful foliage have always been popular, but now more than ever these plants are in extremely high demand. The great thing about plants with attractive, colorful foliage is that they look showy, and have appeal regardless if they are in bloom. Sue Hamilton, Director of the UT Gardens, will teach you how to use colorful foliage plants which can create a bold color impact in your garden that continues for many months. Flowers may come and go as the growing season wears on, but foliage remains vibrant nearly nonstop. Click here to register.
