|A November view through the back circle garden from the patio|
My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird
I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.

Vibrant caladiums are not necessarily what we expect to see in November. With careful planning, the central perennial garden at Hoe and Shovel is alive with colorful foliage from coleus, ornamental bananas and caladium this autumn.

|'Highlighter' Caladium sprouting this week. Planted in a brand new planting bed created in October.|
|'Red Ruffles' Caladium for autumn replaced 'Roseglow' Caladium growing in this container through the summer.|

Var. aztec grass holds them in as the border.
