I didn't actually plan to visit Swansons Nursery while I was in Seattle last month. But after visiting the Bellevue Botanical Garden on Friday, and seeing so many fabulous plum yews, well I decided to make the time to stop at Swansons before I left town on Saturday. Swansons is the one place I've found a Cephalotaxus harringtonia ‘Prostrata’ (the spreading Japanese plum yew) and then only because my friend Michelle tipped me off they had a few, well actually only one by the time I got there, but I bought it!
So Swansons. It was crazy busy and I guess I was one of the few walk-ins that got in that day, as they were basically only letting in folks with prior online reservations (you know, cause COVID). I'll just cut right to the chase and let you know there were no yews... but there was plenty to get excited about.
