Paul it is gorgeous. Did you buy it?
Looks like all those plants should be winter hardy. Thumbs up
What is the tall one with the dried sticks?

Lynn...I didn't buy it as I am thinking winter here. 12 degrees this morning. I.m not certain as to what the twiggy plant was. I was thinking it was an ornamental grass but looking at the picture is does look like twigs with bark. Confused

I can see it has dying leaves still attached. Just can't make out what plant it would be. Almost like one of the daisies?

It looks like caramel heuchera to me too.
Ornamental Kale is showing its age and response to cold.
