Flowering at our exit drive this week is the beautiful Canna ‘Red Futurity’…a superb purple-foliaged canna lily. Learn more about growing canna lilies in your garden.
Here’s a new image of Colocasia ‘Aloha’ growing in our garden. This 2017 introduction from the breeding work of Dr. John Cho is truly amazing and so unique. This plant is 8 weeks in the ground from a 1 quart pot.
Most popular perennials in the market today are introduced and heavily promoted by marketing companies. Every now and then, however, a superb perennial enters the marketplace without any fanfare or marketing, despite being superior and longer-lived than the patented, highly touted cultivars. Such is the case with Euphorbia ‘Cherokee‘…a fabulous purple-foliaged selection we’ve grown since 1999. Euphorbia x martinii ‘Cherokee’ may not look as great in a container, but it is absolutely incredible in the garden. We hope you’ll give it a try…if you like purple foliage.
I just captured this shot of Clematis recta ‘Lime Close’ in the garden. What great dark purple spring foliage!
