I really intended to write only a single post on the YGP, but it’s become two days worth simply because once again I am so enthralled by the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon’s botanical display and wanted to share it.
Here in the midst of the show, where most other booths are trying to sell you something, you can stop and admire cut branches of plants brought in from HPSO member gardens (the ones I’ve pictured are all from Sean Hogan, Cistus Nursery; Roger Gossler, Gossler Farms Nursery; and the garden of Bruce Wakefield). It’s like walking though a small (highly curated) botanical garden.
Every year I am reminded of plants I’ve been meaning to include in my garden, like Mahonia gracilipes…
Argyrocytisus battandieri (Pineapple Broom)
Rhododendron roxieanum var. oreonastes, Greer
San Francisco Flower & Garden Show in March!!!!! Yippee! It’s my first time there and I can’t wait to see how it compares to the Seattle and Portland Shows…plus…there’s gonna be shopping!!! Of course I’ll be taking you all along with me, I can’t wait!
