Last month I showed you the cones on our Abies Koreana ‘Horstmann’s Silberlocke’. Here is the mature specimen that inspired the purchase. If you go to Joy Creek Nursery you can see it for yourself. It is located near the parking lot at the side of the house.
Ours is still a baby in a pot, but just get an eyeful of the cones produced by a grown-up.
I had questioned claims that the winter past was a mild one, but Rhododendron sinogrande don’t lie.
I was gifted the Aeonium undulatum x arboreum ‘Voodoo’ in a pretty blue pot for Mother’s Day. I found it the perfect companion in Dorotheanthus ‘Mazoo Trailing Red’, especially when it begins to produce the promised deep red flowers.
Here’s another pot combo I’m liking this year. The white pot is a challenge. It can look like a chamber pot if I don’t get it right. Here, a base of Baby’s Tears will eventually spill over the edges, with black mondo grass (Ophiopogon planiscapus nigrescens) framing Cupresseus macrocarpa ‘Goldcrest Wilma’.
The Cotinus is already developing a few red spots in its ‘Purple Robe’, making for a combination that pleases me no end. If you hunger for more foliage, visit Pam. She will show you foliage, Texas style (scuze me, make that Denver style), and point you in the right direction to sate your desire.
