I'm officially enthralled by these new "hort couture" plants/containers ~ have you seen them?
It's marketing genius! High fashioned plants ~ why didn't I think of that??
I want to buy every one my greenhouse sells! Unfortunately, my budget won't allow it (marvelous restraint, wouldn't you say??!) but this one did come home with me ~ Ophiopogon 'nigrescens.' I only have to find somewhere to showcase it now. I wish I hadn't finished planting containers or bought that regular elephant's ear. The 'hort couture" Colocasia 'Blue Hawaii' would have come home with me also. If you haven't seen these, click on the link. There are some incredible plants out there and next year, I'm definitely saving room for more of them. Oh, I'm a new fan of their blog too ~ click on over ~ you might become one too.
Now that I have you drooling, can you salivate a bit over Clematis integrefolia ~ in full bloom right now.
Hasn't it formed such an impressive clump? That's about 15 years in the making. This plant has been hauled with me thru four gardens. I believe that's what you'd call a "keeper!"
Have you got any plants like that? Ones that, should you have to move, you would absolutely, hands down, have to dig up and take with you? I know I do ~ I have a list ~ and I think of them before any item in my house!
