PHOTO OF THE MONTH
A “rose” by any other name? This is the Kniphofia, also known as Lady Luck, Red Hot Poker, African Flame, Devil’s Poker, and Torch Lily. These striking perennials from South Africa are showstoppers in the garden and are resistant to deer. These beauties attract hummingbirds, bees and butterflies. Be careful, though! They are excellent proliferators and considered invasive in California & Oregon. With more than 60 varieties, you’re likely to find several to suit your design aesthetic.
ANOTHER POND TOUR SUCCESS
Despite the sweltering heat on Saturday and the morning showers on Sunday, the Pond and Water Garden Tour was well-attended and enjoyed by all who did. Thank you to the committee and volunteers, media friends, retail partners, tour hosts, and especially to SIX-TIME Chair of Pond-O-Rama, Ginny Mueller. Choreographing an event of this size isn’t easy, she just makes it look that way. We hope you were inspired by the gardens and conversation. Until next year…
