Attractive Foliage Plant List icon Plants With Attractive Foliage
bar graphic

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.
