Large foliage plants create drama and enthusiasm. They are easy for the eye to look and and define. It is the difference of looking at a painted wall and one with printed floral wallpaper. Sometimes you need the detailed accents, sometimes you need the solid. Same is true with plants.

I find that using large foliage plants especially in pots is a dramatic way to make a statement. They also create “walls” on a temporary basis when you need it in the summer. In these pots you will see canna, a beautiful tropical flower and castor bean. And here are some more thoughts for big foliage in a small garden.
