What's growing up your trachycarpus trunk?
Unknown (I didn't ask) Schefflera with gorgeous purple new growth.
Schefflera delavayi with deeply incised leaves always causes me to swoon a bit.
Mark Bulwinkle rusty metal work adorns the potager. Mr. Hinkley watering and to the right, the fabulous greenhouse.
No more blue balls last time I visited.
Jeffrey Bale's stunning work is always an inspiration to me!
Luckily we got to see Tropaeolum polyphyllum in full swing. Oh the foliage, oh the buds and blooms, oh the fleeting presence of this beauty. You can read more about it here.
Moses among the rushes? The lady of the lake? The spirit of water? Love it!
My first sighting of Strobilanthes gossypinus. Now all I have to do is look in my own garden (greenhouse in the winter.) One of the many things I've admired about Hinkley gardens over the years is that, like all gardeners, this one is generous in sharing the unusual plants he grows.
The fab foliage of Helleborus multifidus ssp. hercegovinus.
It's always exciting to visit this masterful creation, gain inspiration, some new plant knowledge, and of course a few new plants.
Looking forward to future visits and, with a nod to Columbus Day, future discoveries!
