Well, the wish list just got longer. A visit to Dancing Oaks in Monmouth, Oregon, revealed these lovelies that now must find a place in the garden. I was also happy to find the botanical name and tag information for a ground cover plant that I bought at a recent local plant sale which came with scant to no information. Turns out it could be a pretty good score for that blasted slope which is plaguing us.
|Heuchera Plum Pudding....love the foliage color|
|And, another "must have"...a sizable plant, Crambe cordifolia....this one easily topping 5 feet. It is also known as Colewort, and said to easily grown to 8 feet. Whoa!|
|For some time I've admired this plant and now I finally have a source...it is a Sambucus, possibly Black Lace cultivar. Also, known as an elderberry. Another statuesque specimen from 4-5 feet.|
|This is the mystery plant...turns out to be a creeping raspberry. Who knew?|
