The parking lot is all decked out with petunias just for Loree. (She isn't fond of the fragrance and has a special aversion to touching the sticky plants to deadhead them.) I find them festive, love the fragrance, and who deadheads things like this? No longer having enough sun or space for them, I haven't grown any for many years.
Hand model Danger showing us the display of annuals. I almost wore my "Friends Don't Let Friends Buy Annuals" tee shirt for this visit. It features a graphic of a petunia with a no symbol over it.
One of the legendary sales here was the five dollar brugmansia blowout. These large specimens were not that much more expensive and I was tempted to get another but didn't as I already have too many things to winter over in the greenhouse.
"What is this?"
"I believe it's called a graft."
"Because they can?"
What do you think of this egg in a nest or big evergreen flower thingy?
Rose 'White Eden' tugged at my heart but stayed.
Very nicely priced Butia capita. So many plants, so little space.
She's running the gauntlet of perennials. I came out the other end sans plants. Will she be unscathed?
Not when she sees how beautiful and inexpensive is this combination of Cordyline and Euphorbia 'Ascot Rainbow.'
