We take a lot of photos and we thought it might be fun to share a photo from our garden or travels each day. Rather than share these on our exotic garden blog Alternative Eden we thought it would be good to start a new site dedicated to these photos. The photos we share will sometimes be from the days events but sometimes will relate to our thoughts or particular memories.
We will try to share a photo from our garden or from our travels each day, although sometimes life can get rather hectic so please forgive us if we miss a day here or there.
If you want to ask us about the photos please click on the date under each one to access the comments section.
Farfugium japonicum 'Argenteum' is easy to cultivate, and the markings are stable - unlike some variegated plants, and if that wasnt enough its also a vigorous grower. Each leaf is marked with a random mixture of pure white, pure green and shades in between, producing a pleasing pattern that looks great. Sometimes it will throw out a completely white leaf as well. Finally if it is planted in sun is does not burn and remains pristine for a long time.
