|My "ring of fire" is created by the new growth on the Xylosma congestum hedge that borders the beds in the backyard garden|
|This hedge gets trimmed 3-4 times a year to maintain its height and, while the new growth that follows a trimming always takes on a bronze tone, it's particularly vivid in early spring|
The red in the new spring foliage growth is prominent in other plants too.
|The new growth of Agonis flexuosa 'Nana', a dwarf peppermint willow, also takes on a red tinge|
Speaking of red tones, some of my Aeoniums, green rosettes when I planted them, have colored up nicely this year too.
Other Aeoniums drew my attention for a less positive reason.
|When I saw damage to my Aeoniums along these lines last year, I assumed I had a problem with snails or slugs|
This year the culprit responsible for the damage revealed himself.
That's my Foliage Follow-up for February. Visit Pam at Digging for more.
