I thought I’d let a couple of our nurseries describe the varied colors of this fabulous plant, after all they say it much better than I could:
“This ever-colorful evergreen’s leaves keep growing in yellow-orange-red-green marbled patterns…” – Cistus Nursery
“New growth emerges in tones of hot orange-red and then changes to gold that is irregularly splashed on deep green leaves. NO OTHER HARDY VINE has foliage this color and this dramatic.” – Xera Plants
Trachelospermum asiaticum ‘Ogon Nishiki’ is a feast for the eyes. When I went looking for a shade tolerant vine to plant in these two dish planters I wasn’t sure about this choice, fearing it was a little busy.
What about you, bright colors in the garden, yea or nay? Oh and a couple of other brightly colored/patterned foliage plants I’m currently digging…
