The vegetables may not like the cool damp weather but leafy perennials sure do. I was amazed at the shapes and colors of the various green perennials on my walk around the garden this week.
From the dry shade garden:
Hosta Great Expectations - it is a bit fussy and hasn't grown a lot
From the sunny dry front garden
Eryngium giganteum 'Miss Wilmots Ghost' - now this can definitely be a pest. It seeds like crazy but fortunately, very easy to weed out.
Gunnera tinctoria - sometimes called Dinosaur food or Giant Rhubarb. A native of Chile that is a favorite of the tropical garden look. We finally figured how to mulch it to make it through the winter. It does prefer lots of water also.
