Where things are looking fabulous.
Someday I should do a "then and now" post on this garden. Comparing photos I took on my first visit in 2011 with the present.
I feel like we talked about why this Yucca rostrata is sporting a flat-top, but I can't remember!
My photos from this visit are hardly a comprehensive overview; I was there with many friends, and there was wine. Still I think I hit most of the high-spots. You'll want to take a look at Gerhard's post (here) to get many more details than I'm providing.
Oh wow, I really need to get my Alstroemeria 'Indian Summer' into the ground.
Damn! That's some sexy foliage.
There are two of the folks who shared my visit, Nick Macer and Sean Hogan (with beer)....
My Melianthus major 'Purple Haze' has been buried by Hakonechloa. I really need to right that wrong.
Now we've made our way up to the crevice garden, which is looking fabulous.
Agave ovatifolia, probably 'Frosty Blue'
More of the crevice garden...
When I visited back in May (photos here) the palms were all in bloom, now there are seeds.
Yes, another look at the crevice garden, but we must move on...
Abies koreana, Korean fir, I think (I was told, but that was months ago)...
I really need to find this one again next spring so I can enjoy it for a season.
More foliage magic...
And the Passiflora!
I've always associated this garden with Agaves but this returning exotic may change that.
It's very happy here!
I was allowed to take cuttings last year and failed miserably.
Moving on, one of my favorite vignettes...
Oenothera macrocarpa (I think?)
Acacia baileyana 'Purpurea', a gorgeous, but not hardy in Portland (magic happens in this garden), small tree.
I end this fantastic post with this! I'm not sure which Passiflora it is but wow. It's a beauty...
