3 fo­liage plants for the choco­late bou­quet

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Home-Grown Hand-Made -

There are other fo­liage plants that are suit­able for choco­late bou­quets.

Beech ( Fa­gus) in its many forms is a good con­tender for flo­ral de­sign. If you’re look­ing for choco­late-coloured leaves, Pur­purea and Ro­hanni are great choices.

Heuchera Choco­late Ruf­fles and Heuchera Coco are great picks too, with leaves that last more than 10 days in a vase, and which make ex­cel­lent col­lars for smaller posies. When har­vest­ing Heuchera, pick no more than half the leaves from any one plant in a year or your plants will be­come weak­ened.

The fern-like milk-choco­late fo­liage of An­thriscus sylvestris Ravenswing gives an el­e­gant ef­fect.
