Foliage in a fall color palette

This was part of the annual fall display of chrysanthemums and more at Frederik Meijer Gardens in 2019. The emphasis is always on artful use of a variety of plants to create visual interest. A placard said the foliage was some kind of philodendron. The red flowers are chrysanthemums, of course.

Re my banner for October 26, Foliage in a fall color palette.

First, thanks for the warm welcome to the group of contributors to this feature of the website. All the thumbs up and the comments were much appreciated.

I thought that if any of you love the color foliage plants can bring to gardens and plant displays as much as I do, you might like to see the full photo from which I took this banner. There was a mirror at the back of the display bed (always challenging for a photographer to work around).

Beautiful banner, so sorry I missed it yesterday! The colors and textures are amazing. Thanks for sharing something I miss seeing. The colors of Fall are missing in this desert area, we would have to drive for a few hours and the display is not near this beautiful. Thanks for the memory!
