One more Spokane nursery visit: Tower Perennial Gardens
I've been here before, but this is the summeriest I've ever seen it.
This patch of Artemisia ludoviciana 'Valerie Finnis' reminded me that mine, at that time, was MIA. Since then it has started to return, although it's not nearly as grand as this.
I'm pretty sure I photographed these same Agaves last time I was here...
Increasing shade has taken its toll and my Euphorbia griffithii ‘Fireglow’ didn't bloom this year. I guess better start scouting for places to move it.
Seeing these rocks, under the Spokane sun, takes me back to the area that I grew up. Dry piles of basalt. Definitely not the "lush green" many people picture when they think of Washington state!
Macleaya cordata, Plume Poppy
And there's always room for a Verbascum.
Another one of those well placed empty containers.
I really need to give my Rodgersia more room to spread.
Okay, let's look at the plants for sale...
First I must go to the greenhouse at the end, and work my way back.
Quercus dentata 'C.F. Miller'
Weigela 'Spilled Wine'
Labeled as Agave schottii, but with a question mark.
Into the shade house...
For me the appeal of a Hosta is in it's big leaves, I don't understand the thin leaved ones like this H. 'Praying Hands'.
Oenothera longifolia 'Lemon Sunset' concludes our visit (and yes, I left without buying a thing!).
