Malus 'Madonna' blooms greeted us near the front entrance.
Brugmansia blooms. I finally got my first bloom this spring on mine in the green house. Alison got blooms much earlier. Flower World almost always has these in stock and in bloom.
Abutilon 'Red Tiger' trained into standards were everywhere as were Abutilon megapotamicum 'Variegatum' in hanging pots.
And of course fancy leaved geraniums (pelargonium.) This one is 'Vancouver Centennial' a perfect partner for dark leaved phromium!
Also ever present are tons of African Violets. I haven't grown these since I was a kid. Do you grow them?
Alison and I have both killed this beauty.
Ah the foliage!
So nice to see Beaucarnea recurvata (Ponytail Palm) allowed to have a single trunk. Lately it seems that I only see them in stores with multiple trunks.
Cordyline terminalis 'Tricolor'
Had to pick up one of these since they were small and inexpensive.
Another gorgeous Cordyline!
Rex Begonias are faves but I have enough of them!
A few of the many tables of tomatoes. There were all kids of other veggie starts as well.
Amusing to see the seed potatoes displayed among the ornamental plants.
Of course they carry lots of conifers, trees shrubs, well lots of everything.
Fortunately the map mailboxes are posted throughout the nursery in case you get lost.
There is a vine house, ground cover house, etc. Here's the Herb house.
Ginger mint is my favorite to grow both for the way it looks and the way it smells.
YIKES! This stuff will take over bushes, flower beds, small communities. Fortunately, it's easy enough to pull up.
Grasslands. Those palms are everywhere!
Scads of Japanese maples!
Acer palmatum 'Higasayama'
Acer palmatum 'Purple Ghost'
Acer palmatum 'Full Moon'
Acer palmatum 'Koto no ito"
Brugmansia sanguinea is pretty but does not have that fabulous evening fragrance of the others.
Walking through the park to cross the street and see the farm.
The black sheep of the family.
Hey, Little Bo Peep, I think we found your sheep! Some cute pygmy goats to boot!
Notice the pile of baby ducks huddled together for warmth.
These adults have their coats on.
Hello, I am a tease.
I'll start to fan my tail but then decide against it.
This is all you're getting!
Hope you enjoyed it because I just can't be bothered to do any more.
And I hope you enjoyed poking around Flower World as much as we did! It's not far (15 minutes) from Molbaks and definitely worth a visit when you're in the area!
Happy weekend and happy gardening everyone!
