Over the Top

 A friend in the wholesale nursery business who could not join us this year on the annual garden tour, stepped up  to the plate and facilitated a visit to Terra Nova Nursery in Oregon. I took so many photos here I think it may be a duo-post; for this one I'll just let the pictures do the talking. Hotcha !























Thank you V ~

  4. What fun all that color is!!! All that orange is just great.
    I have questions already...What is the yellow plant that appears in the first and second shots? At first I thought it was Berberis, but it seems too low for that. Is it a sedum? And what is the green plant in the very center of the second frame?
    Looking forward to the next installment for sure!

    1. Marie, the yellow plant is Veronica 'Aztec Gold', and the green plant I'm unsure of ..maybe a Ligularia ?

  7. It is all so artfully combined and impeccably planted. Feels like a trip back to the LSD 60s! The green/white combo is almost a calming vignette but I too can't recognize half the items there.... Wow - what an amazingly special treat to tour. Cindy H.

    1. I had no clue this garden was going to be like this, so it had the element of surprise going for it as well.And impeccably maintained too.
