The great thing about walking the neighborhood is you see things you might miss from the car. I’d noticed this particular garden because it has the most exquisitely pruned Sambucus. And truth be told, I’ve been hoping to catch the pruner in the act–so I can offer to clear some of the pruned bits. Rumor has it that it’s easy plant to propagate. And I’m ready to give it a try.
Crazy good, right?
I don’t know how I missed this plant in bloom. Maybe because the next street over has great gardens too, and I often take that route instead. But next year, I’ll be on the case. And when I see the gardener, I’ll ask if my guess about it being P. ‘Eight Ball’ is correct.
Here’s a wider shot of the garden. You can see why I’d be distracted. Beautifully curated and maintained.
Do you have this Pomegranate, and do you think I’ve got the i.d. right? Drop a note. We love hearing from you.
