Here in the Portland area we have a long running late winter/early spring tradition called Nerd Night. Plant people gather, nursery owners talk dirty to us (you know, plants and pictures of plants) and sell us plants. It's great! This year's event took place last Friday night. I was tempted by a few choice Schefflera at the Far Reaches Farm booth, but managed to resist (no space!). My only plant purchase was this adorable pair of tiny (4" pot) Yucca gloriosa 'Bright Star' from N&M Nursery...
There was an Abutilon I really wanted at the Sebright Gardens booth, but another person grabbed it before I could. Now I'm on the hunt for it, Abutilon megapotamicum 'Paisley' it's pretty. Richie Steffan, of Great Plant Picks, spoke about a ground cover Lonicera that looked to be pretty special, I'm after it too now: Lonicera crassifolia. Nerd Night Friday and a talk from John Anderson, the Queen's Gardener, on Sunday...lots of planty action here in Portland last weekend!
