A few leaves from Pan-Global Plants

Echeveria elegans
I paid a long overdue visit to Nick Macer at Pan-Global Plants, Frampton-on-Severn, this afternoon and enjoyed a good long chatter about plants, especially the good ones with which his nursery is so abundantly stocked. Here are a few leaves that caught my attention.

Rhus succedanea, from seed collected by Nick Macer in Vietnam. Although it is now past its peak the colour in the leaves is amazing.
Phlomis angustifolia: perhaps a dubious name, but a superb foliage plant

Quercus kelloggii
Magnolia macrophylla

  1. Kellog's oat flakes? But I guess this Kellog was a botanist.
