    Nadia's posting complements Douglas Justice's December 2019 in the Garden | UBC Botanical Garden blog promoting the interesting features of the garden in winter. Plants featured in the blog are Osmanthus - six species - and Phillyrea. If you have a look this month, there is an easy link to the December tour on Garden explorer, with lots of photos.
