New Plants!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting Windcliff for the first time and Heronswood for the second time.  I'd do a gigantic post about it if I wasn't getting ready for our 2nd annual Normandy Park Garden Festival next Saturday, July 6th, from 11-4 but after I recover I might.  In the meantime, here are the plants I picked up:

Clockwise from back left:
Pittosporum tenuifolium 'County Park Dwarf' - Black foliage all year, new growth is bright green.
Osmunda regalis ‘Cristata’ - Royal crested fern.  This is a great plant pick.
Phygelius capensis - Cape fuscia.  More hummingbird food.
Clematoclethra hemsleyana var. akebioides DJSJ 3008 - A semi-evergreen vine.
Podophyllum delavayi - Finally!  This has been on my wish list for way too long.
Urginea macrocarpa - Another odd & rare wonder from South Africa.  The flowers resemble lilies.
Disporum cantoniense 'Green Giant' - Chinese Fairy Bells.  Reaches 4' tall.


  1. Happy new plants to you, Happy new plants to you, Happy new plants dear Justin, Happy new plants to you! You got some great plants and I'm very happy for you that you finally got that podophyllum, one of my faves! Looking forward to attending your festival!
