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.
