June Foliage Follow Up

I'm featuring some variegated plants for Foliage Follow Up hosted by Pam at Digging ...

such as this Variegated Ginger - not sure what kind, it was a passalong plant.


This Tricolor St. John's Wort survived the terrible winter with no problems.


One of the caladiums in a bulk package from a box store.

This nameless hydrangea has variegated leaves and flowers.

I know these leaves aren't variegated, but I had to show off the beautiful stems of this black-stemmed hydrangea - another passalong plant.

Check out more fabulous foliage at Digging.
