Garden pictures from July 2 2009
These are from the old garden in Olympia. I did not get around to posting them earlier. None of the Callistemons were in bloom yet or there would have been a lot more to see. Sorry about the lighting; it was approaching sunset when we were there.
Eryngium agavifolium with Anemanthele lessoniana
Thamnocalamus aristatus/spathiflorus or some such thing
Podocarpus salignus in new growth
bottom of Chusquea valdiviensis
Trachycarpus fortunei 'Victoria' (thanks Jeff in BC)
Clerodendron bungei takes over the world
Variegated Algerian ivy... I think I might have got this from Mike Turner
Top of Chusquea valdiviensis with Vitis coignetiae at left.
Magnolia macrophylla and Eucalyptus cordata
Grevillea victoriae (planted 1998) and Kniphofia linearifolia
Araucaria angustifolia... still kinda tough to see with that Eucalyptus neglecta behind it.
Eucalyptus elliptica x nitens
Eucalyptus regnans (left... barely survived the winter, I think), E. nitens (right)
Quercus chrysolepis, probably... or perhaps Q. vaccinifolia
Juabea chilensis. Planted as a two leaf seedling in 2000... never had any damage but with no water and not enough light, it's SLOW (not surprisingly).
Chusquea culeou (seedling of a compact form) and trunk of Eucalyptus elliptica x nitens
Grevillea 'Poorinda Queen'
Cornus controversa 'Variegata'
Eucalyptus scoparia, Phormium tenax bronze, Betula pendula 'Youngii', Leptospermum lanigerum, Metasequoia glyptostroboides
Cordyline australis. The big red/purple one froze.
