One last post from my October trip north to the Seattle area. I ended up with a few open minutes after the Bellevue Botanical Garden, so I hit nearby Wells Medina Nursery.Weather Diary, Nov 23: Hi 52, Low 41/ Precip .15"
She found her special pumpkin.
I am so thankful most nurseries have been able to remain open through much of this COVID crazy year. I can't imagine what my world would be like had that not been the case.
Love this color/texture combo, that's Calluna Skyline series on the left, sadly I didn't make note of what the purple foliage on the right was
Funny, I forgot I'd been lusting after this Erica arborea 'Estrella Gold' here, I bought one shortly after this, back in Portland.
I think I've offically given up on Hebe pimeleoides 'Quicksilver', it just doesn't look good in my garden, not like it does here.
More than just a pretty flower, ha! The ones I have, I grow not caring if they ever bloom.
That's some bright foliage, I do like the idea of it going black in winter.
Where as I'd grow Yummy Yak only if I got to say it's name a lot.
Still a very well-stocked nursery for October, with not many people milling about. Then again it was a weekday.
Rhododendron 'Elizabeth Red Foliage'
I love the shape of these hanging baskets, if not the materials. I need to find something similar that's metal. Not that I have any place for more hanging containers.
Geranium maculatum 'Crane Dance'... love this foliage, but the two other dark-leaved geraniums I've tried both disappeared after their first year. Have you had success?
Finally, Aruncus dioicus 'Kneiffii', aka cutleaf goat's beard. I've never grown goat's beard, but this foliage was tempting.
