Gardening Tip Be sure to add foliage to your flower garden. Most people overlook foliage and plant ‘only’ flowers trying to get the most color possible. Foliage comes in many shapes, sizes, dull, shiny, upright or low ground cover. Not to mention the different colors of foliage such as dark or light green, burgundy, and chartreuse green that will make your flower blooms ‘POP’ with color.

Lime Zinger Colocasia esculenta Lime Zinger’ is the light bulb of the garden with its 2-foot-long, heart-shaped leaves that flutter in the slightest breeze. With a motto that seems to be “the hotter, the better,” this plant’s chartreuse foliage holds its color. Plants grow as if on steroids, reaching 3 to 5 feet tall with a 4- to 5-foot spread. ‘Lime Zinger’ performs well in full sun and partial shade and doesn’t mind slightly acidic, rich, moist soil.
