Amaranthus paniculatus ‘Autumn’s Touch’ (amaranth), adding a touch of its coppery inflorescence to the Osborne Garden. Photo by Lee Patrick.
Helichrysum petiolare ‘Silver Mist’ (licorice plant), sporting silvery gray-green leaves in the Osborne Garden. The common name comes from the slight licorice scent of the foliage, and is not the plant where actual licorice comes from. In fact, H. petiolare is toxic to people and animals, though still often desired as a trailing shrub. Photo by Lee Patrick.
