“Escape the winter dark and just give over to the names of the plants: Love Parade, Emerald Gaiety, Star of India, Lady in Red, Dark Knight, Ruby Spice, Persian Yellow, Black Negligee.
And then think of new rockerie plants for 2011: small conifers with names from far far places: Weeping Norway spruce, Oasis Siberian larch, Gold Coast Juniper……..
Give over to your imagination: a sweeping vista overlooking the Slocan River, demonstration gardens, a thousand plants with gorgeous names.
Against the Wind Nursery in Winlaw; select plants, endless possibilities.”
Rita Moir, December, 2011.
