Burgeoning burgundies: burgundy foliage plants
Maybe I am already wishing for fall by starting to look fordly at plants with burgundy foliage. They are such a startling contrast next to green and make for wonderful focal points in a garden. The plants shown here are: Agonis flexulosa 'Afterdark', Prunus cerasifera, Loropetalum chinensis 'Sizzling Pink', Pennisetum 'Fireworks', Cordyline 'Festival Grass', and Azalea 'Little John'.
Try adding them to a landscape of mostly green foliage to add interest to a classic look, or use them in pots as dramatic focal points.
