|It's hard to get a good picture of this Dampiera. The foliage really is wiry.|
Another recent acquisition is a diminutive Phormium, 'Tiny Tiger,' which I picked up on the same nursery trip up north last week. It gets just one foot high and one foot wide so it should do fine in its location along the pathway of my dry garden.
I've also added a mass planting of Alternanthera tenella 'Crinkle Red' along the pathway in my renovated side garden.

As of last week, no fewer than 3 Prostanthera ovalifolia 'Variegata' have taken root in my garden.
|This Prostanthera ovalifolia, placed in the side yard in late September, is getting by on morning sun only so far|
|My newest Prostanthera ovalifolia, purchased for a bargain price of $8.99 last weekend, is seated in front of a Ceanothus hedge in the back garden|
I've posted about my use of Coprosma repens 'Plum Hussey' in the garden many times (most recently here) but I've also added the smaller-leafed Coprosma 'Evening Glow' to my collection
|One of 3 Coprosma 'Evening Glow,' all still relatively small|
But the foliage plants making the biggest impact in the garden right now are still the 2 Persimmon trees we inherited with the house (previously featured here), which are in their full fall splendor.
