gardens on spring creek
A community botanic garden in Fort Collins, CO.
This summer they put in a new rock garden. Let's have a look!
The rock garden. It seems they have not yet labeled many of the plants.
Pinus monophylla (and maybe some Arctostaphylos and Cercocarpus in there too)
Pinus edulis dwarf (in bloom, penstemon?)
Sequoiadendron giganteum, at the entrance of the garden
The largest sequoia I've seen in Colorado (although there are probably larger)
It was cold and raining, and before long I was soaked!
We've had 0.36 inches of precipitation in the past 24 hours; the monthly average for October is 1.18.
It will be fun to see how these conifers do over the coming years.
