Plenty of garden goodness out there still, at least around the Pacific Northwest. Here are a few shots from my Concordia Neighborhood walkabouts.
There are a couple Yucca rostratas in my garden, but these are is in a neighbors’ front yard. Form, texture, hardiness: it has it all.
Forever tempted by Clerodendron, but so far, it’s a no go. Glad I can always enjoy neighborhood trees.
This Fatsia aka Japanese Aralia is in my garden, one of several. Love those big leaves. Hardy and gorgeous year round. Usually.
I’d love to add more conifers to my garden, but every time I fall in love, I discover that my heartthrob gets at least a thousand feet tall.
Tetrapanax start from my garden. This plant is about 2′ tall, thus the top-down view. Surprising color, no? Frisky plant, but I still love it.
The Alpine Snow Gum — so beautiful. And gigantic. Appreciate neighbors taking the plunge.
So that’s the quick report from my northeast Portland OR neighborhood. Wishing you joy, good health, and plants that fulfill your wildest dreams.
