It's been a couple years or so since I visited Greenland Garden Centre's Botanical Garden so things have changed, evolved and grown. The most significant difference I noted was a lack of vegetables grown in the beds. There are a few varieties of apples but that's it for the edible garden. Which is, actually, perfectly fine with me because when I visit a botanical garden, I'm there to see which ornamental trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals I might consider for future planting. The apple trees are a bonus and must look and smell amazing in the spring!
The tour will take only a few minutes; just follow my lead....
The botanical garden frames a small pond.
I love the pink tinged flower heads on this variegated grass.
Sorry, I didn't catch the name.
Weeping trees in the landscape just do it for me! Anytime I see one, I must get closer! Their form is very becoming to me.
Speedwell and day lilies
I've grown this grass before but haven't seen it "bloom". It's light airy wisps are eye-catching against the backdrop of an evergreen.
Veronica aka Speedwell, above and below
Coral Bells aka Heuchera, above, is a lovely plant for low light conditions. I find they brown in full sun.
I love this clematis!
In front, the intricate branch form of a weeping birch.
A blue spruce is just visible in front of a ground cover
juniper with flowering spirea behind.
Ninebark offers a contrasting backdrop in burgundy tones.
Part II will take us indoors and through the tree nursery area. I hope you'll return to see what's in store. (pun intended ;P)
