Sophisticated Silver Foliage!
Fantastic contrastic plants that light up the garden!

As gardeners, we all love flowers – riotous, rewarding, ravishing blooms in every shade of the rainbow, brightening the garden and bringing in the bees and other pollinators. But a well-balanced and interesting garden does not thrive on blooms alone! Glorious gardens need texture, verticality and contrast – something that our collection of sensual silver-foliaged plants can provide in spades, whether it's providing a cool-toned foil to hot colors like red and yellows, complimenting blues, yellows or pinks or capturing the eye in a sea of green foliage.

Bonus! Most silver-foliaged and fuzzy-leaved plants are by nature drought tolerant and deer and bug resistant! They're tough and adaptable, fuzzy and pettable, low maintenance and USEFUL – just give them all good drainage and average/low water and you'll be rewarded with a glowing display that makes your garden shine!
