First Garden Tour / Plant Markers

hosta_house(IL 6)June 6, 2010

I did a garden tour today of 8 area homes and came home with the wants. All of the gardens were very impressive but one stood out and the homeowner used plant markers for his visitors from the tour, I heard many people asking where he got them. I thought I would share this here in case someone might be interested. Here is the link and several photos:

Here are some of my wants:

Persicaria Red Dragon

Burgundy Hearts Red Bud Tree

Indian Pink

Purple Smoke Bush

Unknown - Begonia?
