Gorski's "A Garden I Love." Truthfully, I probably wouldn't have noticed it (his display also had Pacific Fire) but I overheard him chatting with a couple about the lovely scent this beauty gives off. I've been wanting to add Viburnum to the yard because I enjoy the veined leaves. But I read that this one not only has sweet smelling flowers in winter, its leaves also give off a citrus scent when bruised. Gimme!
susceptible to Eastern Filbert Blight. Hmmm, perhaps I'll just admire from afar.
Ahh, the Magnolias. "Purple Eye" caught my attention out of the gate as I wondered around "Get Away to it All" by Michael Hancock and created by Modern Shed and Serene Scapes, Inc. The plant's late winter attraction clearly is the fuzzy pods, but soon those would burst with large white fragrant flowers that fade to soft purple at the base of each petal.
UPDATE: Grace Peterson, an Oregon resident, says the ban has been lifted. Yippee!
