This is getting ridiculous. I've asked everyone I can think of if they know where this garden is, or who it belongs to, and I've got nothing! Portland's gardening community is pretty tight, how can none of my people know this garden?
The backstory: my friend Louis recently made a trip down from Canada to visit a few places in Portland. A random exit off I-5 southbound had him discovering this garden, and getting so enthralled he didn't make note of where he was...
But I would so love to see it for myself, and ask the owners about this beautiful Agave montana, among other things.
If you think you know this garden, but don't want to leave info in the public comments section, please email me! (spiky plants at gmail dot com). Fingers crossed...somebody knows! Oh and no, there isn't any GPS tracking info attached to these photos. He didn't use his phone and his camera doesn't capture that info.
*** GOOD NEWS***
I have an address, thanks to Portland Tree Tour and her eagle eye (and her kids...which get her out and about all over town). Hopefully we'll be successful in making contact and there will be more info to share soon! Thank you Julie!!!
