I want this!! Caladium 'Thai Beauty': This caladium thrives in partial shade, tolerating up to half a day of sunlight (which actually improves its color). The leaves emerge green in spring, but quickly begin assuming their bright, eye-catching hues that holds up nicely no matter how hot and humid your summer gets. Grows up to 20" tall. Perennial in zones 9-10.

Hosta 'Ice Follies' is a probable tetraploid mutation of the old standard, Hosta 'Antioch'. Hosta 'Ice Follies' is much smaller than its parent, forming a small 1' tall x 2' wide clump of pointed green leaves, with a very wide border that emerges gold and ages to cream.

Hosta 'Stained Glass',Sambucus 'Sutherland Gold', Cimicifuga 'Pink Spike' Caryopteris 'Snow Fairy' and Heuchera 'Silver Scrolls'.
