So often people think the Floral Marquee is all about flowers, but the foliage on show is equally spectacular! Here are my top 5:

1¬†Eryngium x zabelii ‘Jos Eijking’

eryngium plants from RHS Hampton Court Palace

Also known as the Sea Holly. Beautiful blue-purple colour and spiky leaves.

2 Fatsia Spider’s Web

This has huge pointed leaves with white speckles that look like they’ve been painted.

3 Imperata cylindrica Red Baron

imperata-cylindrica-red-baron plants from RHS Hampton Court Palace

A great grassy plant whose leaves turn red at the tips. Perfect foliage for colour.

4 Acer palmatum ‘Shirazz’

Acers have lovely foliage, and this mixture of red and green leaves makes it an ideal garden tree.

5 Pelargonium Scarlet Pet (Unique)

Okay, I know this is technically a flower, but it has scented foliage!
