What are some great foilage plants for Zone 5?
I'm looking for more plants that have neat foilage. I've got Huechera Can-Can, Husker's Red, Heuchera Bressingham, Autumn Joy Sedum, Platycodon. I also like the foilage of my Dianthus Helen, Armeria, and Laura Phlox. Some of the plants that get ratty looking either after bloom or because of insects or heat are Black-eyed Susans, Stella De'oro, Maltese Cross, Coreopsis, Purple Coneflower. I am debating on adding Becky Shasta Daises--the foilage looks great on the plants at the garden centers--just wondering if it stays nice. I want to add more great foilage plants for interest and to hide foilage of ratty looking plants. I've been looking for Baptisia Australis for several years to no avail--tried to start some from seed but no luck with that yet--will try winter sowing this year.
