Plants With Attractive Foliage
This symbol indicates plants that are noteworthy for their foliage, whether it be the color, texture, size or shape. Foliage plants are special whether they are in bloom or not. Many are just as colorful and just as beautiful as flowers. Floridata places plants such as ferns, coleus, caladiums and plants with varigated foilage in this list.
Around this time of year farmers here in Kentucky remove the flower buds from the waist-high tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) plants. Sometimes they miss a few, like this on, and the showy, fragrant flowers make an appearance.

In addition to our Plant Profiles, there are hundreds more pages that you can visit on Floridata's Articles and Resources page where you find links to our Butterfly Gallery that profiles 49 species, a Wildflower Meadow Gardening "how to" and many other gardening and natural science features.
