Ivydene Gardens Leaf and Form Foliage Gallery:
Site Map

Foliage on plants is usually renewed in the Spring to produce juvenile or Spring foliage. This matures to its Summer Colour. In Autumn, the deciduous tree/shrub may change the colour of the foliage as it removes the parts it wants before discarding the leaf, or other plants may change their foliage colour in the autumn. Usually there are no leaves on the deciduous trees/shrubs during the winter, but other plants may change their foliage colour during that time.

The Introduction Page of the Plants Topic provides a system of how to choose your plants for your garden with the following diagram to create a suitable list of plants:-







Click inside yellow box to link to Companion Planting, Cut Flowers, Rabbit-Resistant or Bee-Pollinated Pages for lists of plants


Click inside green box to link to
Deciduous Tree, Deciduous Shrub, Herbaceous Perennial, Annual,
Evergreen Tree, Evergreen Shrub, Evergreen Perennial or Bulb, Tuber, Rhizome Photo Gallery Site Map Page,
view Index Pages for lists of plants
view flower colour per month comparison pages using links on their flower colour per month Colour Wheel, click on thumbnail and review added Plant Description Page.

The above Galleries contain the Index Pages listing all the plants in their respective Sub-Galleries. The Sub-Galleries - besides containing the relevant Plant Description Pages (links to them in the Site Map) - also compare the flower colour, foliage colour, habit/shape, fruit/seeds and in flowerbeds/landscape.


In addition to the above method of choosing plants is the following:-

  • The Flower Colour Wheel Gallery has collections of different types of plant with the same colour from 1 of the 53 colours of flower petal on the same page, so that could be added to the top of the above diagram like the Bee-Pollinated or Rabbit-resistant criteria to get the same, complementary or contrasting flower colour. There is a link to its Description Page by clicking:-
    • Botanical Plant Name,
    • or clicking Flowering Months to compare the same flower colour in each month of all in that same type of plant, then clicking the thumbnail to add the Description Page. Each Text Description below each of the Thumbnails in those Comparison Pages gives you the:-
      • soil type it prefers,
      • plant name,
      • sun aspect,
      • soil moisture in the background colour and
      • height of the plant in the border colour of that plant.
  • The All Flowers per Month in this Gallery complements the Flower Colour Wheel gallery by having the flower photo in each month of one of the following petal colours that that plant flowers; then a link to its Description Page by clicking on that Thumbnail:-
    • Blue
    • Brown
    • Cream
    • Green
    • Mauve
    • Orange
    • Pink
    • Purple
    • Red
    • Unusual and Multi-Coloured - multi-coloured in each flower and/or different flower colours
    • White
    • Yellow.
    • Each Text Description below each of the Thumbnails in those Comparison Pages gives you the:-
      • soil type it prefers,
      • plant name,
      • sun aspect,
      • soil moisture in the background colour,
      • plant type,
      • months of flowering and
      • height of the plant in the border colour of that plant.
  • The All Foliage Gallery (Leaf and Form Foliage Gallery) has collections of different types of plant with the same colour from the 212 colours of mature foliage on the same page to produce the same, complementary or contrasting mature foliage colour lists. Each Text Description below each of the Thumbnails in those Comparison Pages gives you the:-
    • soil type it prefers,
    • plant name,
    • sun aspect,
    • soil moisture in the background colour,
    • plant type,
    • months of flowering and
    • height of the plant in the border colour of that plant.
  • The All Spring Foliage, All Summer Foliage, All Autumn Foliage and All Winter Foliage will have collections of different types of plant with the same colour in that season from the 212 colours of foliage on the same page where that foliage is a different colour in more than 1 season. The same colours as in the All Foliage Gallery are used in these Galleries. This can produce the same, complementary or contrasting foliage colour in each season lists or juvenile growth season followed by mature season followed by dying to dead annual foliage season lists. Each Text Description below each of the Thumbnails in those Comparison Pages gives you the:-
    • soil type it prefers,
    • plant name,
    • sun aspect,
    • soil moisture in the background colour,
    • plant type,
    • months of flowering and
    • height of the plant in the border colour of that plant.
  • The Rock Plant Flowers has plants suitable for a small rock garden with the same colour from 1 of the 53 colours of flower petal on the same page. The same colours as in the Flower Colour Wheel are used here. Each of the hundreds of Text Descriptions in the Index Pages gives you the:-
    • soil mixture it prefers,
    • plant name,
    • sun aspect position and protection,
    • soil moisture,
    • plant type,
    • flower colour and months of flowering,
    • height and width of the plant and
    • propagation details.

This All Foliage Gallery (Leaf and Form Foliage) Gallery aims to show the mature leaf and the overall shape/habit of the plant. If the plant has juvenile foliage or other foliage colours, then the:-

  • Spring Foliage Gallery - usually juvenile foliage in March-May, but plants like a bulb can produce its juvenile foliage in Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter
  • Summer Foliage Gallery - usually mature foliage in June-August
  • Autumn Foliage Gallery - usually dying deciduous foliage in September-November
  • Winter Foliage Gallery - usually for evergreen foliage in December-February

aims to show those 4 photos (Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter) on the relevant colour wheel page for the colour of the leaf in the photo of that season. A link to the juvenile foliage colour page in the juvenile foliage gallery will be in this gallery in the Text Field below the Leaf/Form Photos.

Extra Instructions for Pages in this Gallery, where additional plants which are not detailed in the remainder of this website are placed into 1 of the 12 colours in each of the months that they flower. The name of the colour used as background colour and named in the Flower Colour and Foliage Colour cells corresponds to the name of 1 of the 212 colours created for the foliage in the Foliage Colour Wheel Gallery


Then, those details are copied into the relevant Foliage Colour Wheel Page table here.

Plant Type is:-

  • A for Aquatic
  • Ba for Bamboo
  • Bu for Bulb
  • Cl for Climber
  • Co for Conifer
  • F for Fern
  • G for Grass
  • H for Herb
  • P for Perrenial
  • Rh for Rhododendron, Azalea, Camellia
  • Ro for Rose
  • Sh for Shrub
  • So for Soft Fruit
  • To for Top Fruit
  • Tr for Tree
  • V for Vegetable
  • W for Wildflower

followed by:-

  • E for Evergreen or
  • D for Deciduous or
  • H for Herbaceous

"Soils vary enormously in characteristics, but the size of the particles that make up a soil defines its gardening characteristics:

  • Clay: less than 0.002mm
  • Silt: 0.002-0.05mm
  • Sand: 0.05-2mm
  • Stones: bigger than 2mm in size
  • Chalky soils also contain calcium carbonate or lime

The dominating particle size gives soil its characteristics and because the tiny clay particles have a huge surface area for a given volume of clay they dominate the other particles:

Clay soils have over 25 percent clay. Also known as heavy soils, these are potentially fertile as they hold nutrients bound to the clay minerals in the soil. But they also hold a high proportion of water due to the capillary attraction of the tiny spaces between the numerous clay particles. They drain slowly and take longer to warm up in spring than sandy soils. Clay soils are easily compacted when trodden on while wet and they bake hard in summer, often cracking noticeably.

Sandy soils have high proportion of sand and little clay. Also known as light soils, these soils drain quickly after rain or watering, are easy to cultivate and work. They warm up more quickly in spring than clay soils. But on the downside, they dry out quickly and are low in plant nutrients, which are quickly washed out by rain. Sandy soils are often very acidic.

Silt soils, comprised mainly of intermediate sized particles, are fertile, fairly well drained and hold more moisture than sandy soils, but are easily compacted

Loams are comprised of a mixture of clay, sand and silt that avoid the extremes of clay or sandy soils and are fertile, well-drained and easily worked. They can be clay-loam or sandy-loam depending on their predominant composition and cultivation characteristics.

Peat soils are mainly organic matter and are usually very fertile and hold much moisture. They are seldom found in gardens.

Chalky or lime-rich soils may be light or heavy but are largely made up of calcium carbonate and are very alkaline." from Royal Horticultural Society.

well-drained - indicates that plant will rot in standing water such as wet clay.

with mulch - indicates plant requires 4 inch (10 cms) depth of organic mulch of compost to grow well.

If you know the name of the plant you wish to see, you can ask Google and get information; otherwise for the public this website may help you choose your plants using foliage, shape and seed/fruit as well as flower photos before you buy them mailorder directly from the nursery / seed company that has not donated the use of their photos!

With free advertising of their plants, I am asking
- from 2006 to 2015 -
for photos from the public / nurseries / seed companies / suppliers in the UK, or any other country in the European Union, who would supply plants / seeds mailorder direct to the public in the UK and/or the rest of the world. This also applies to American nurseries for America, Chinese Nurseries for China, etc since the plants from most other countries in the world can also be grown in the UK as well as their own country; providing the appropriate growing conditions are stated.
