It seems an undisputed fact around Utah gardeners that there is no finer online provider of drought tolerant plants as High Country Gardens.  This contributes to a large amount of screen time “just looking” at the 2016 offerings.

The unusual Buddleia alternifolia above came warmly recommended by the Plant Select lecturer during Plant Con. I don’t have space for it right now but can’t promise not to bring one home if I meet one.

The pink Eriogonum above is not hardy to my zone but what an annual it would make, a good alternative to Verbena Bonariensis maybe? It’s hard to get an idea of the size and leaves from this picture.

This is another of those “if only I had the space…”. A springtime walk in the wooded area the Water Conservation garden in South Jordan would convince anyone they need a Philadelphus Lewis. The smell is absolutely intoxicating.

That about wraps it up… staring at plants makes me really resent the snow, better get back to my loom.
