I just got to thinking you might be curious about what I’ve been bringing home with me since I started working at Joy Creek. Eryngium ‘Sapphire Blue’ is right at home, nestled between ‘Valerie Finnis’ and ‘Helen Von Stein’.
It’s prickly presence is a nice contrast to the softness of the lambs’ ears.
A little further along Delusional Drive, Sempervivum ‘El Toro’ compliments the bronze tones of Carex buchanii.
My newest bed is devoted to orange. A couple of new discoveries were this Salvia africana-lutea…
and Zantedeschia ‘Flame’. I have high hopes for them filling out this bed in time.
Now here’s the most recent addition. I’m over the moon about this one.
Here’s a shot of a mature specimen taken at the Portland Fling’s visit to Bela Madrona, and a link to more info on Plant Lust.
Even as a wee bairn, as seen here, its charms are unmistakable.
I can’t seem to stop taking pictures of it. You may wonder at my restraint, but I am trying to bring home only plants that I have places in mind for planting. It’s a challenge, being surrounded by so many temptations every day that I go to work. I know exactly where to put this one…so better hop to it. See you next time.
