Coast garden tour « pot pourri » 1. A mixed tray of sempervivum and friends (I have a little factory to put in to planters if there’s a gap) — the spiky one is very gentle silver grey called « sea urchin » (yes the name drew my attn) 2. White daisy — name? @Margot ? I don’t know where it came from — it seeds medium freely - I estimate each flower is the size of Cdn / US quarter 25 cents coin. I keep it because bees like it. 3. Same mystery daisy with aster leaves (will bloom in Sept) plus hosta Christmas Tree .... not very tall but sure grows wide (as per description) (I see some PJM rhodo leaves with their unique scent even today - and some columbine leaves (aquilegia) 2012 Eunice Fisher Distinguished Hybridizer Merit Award 4. Vine maple seedlings - yes they volunteer - these are small 4 inch pots approx 2 yr old now. (Acer circinatum native to coastal BC and of course coastal AK , WA OR usa ) @Acerholic was having a recent chat with @Keith Elliott in Shuswap about this plant (and Douglas maple) 5. Coast wild elderberry (sambucus) for AcerH who recently posted a cultivated black one ... the little wild birds love these red berries @Acerholic 6. Hère comes SANTA CLAUS! Truly the name of this somewhat hardy fuchsia OK In our climate - it got a bit frosted so to speak and not many blooms but maybe I can coax Santa Claus along for thé ride 7. Coastal garden art with sempervivum —- good old thrift store salmon fish mousse molds ! 8. As above 9. I am nuts about this one with its built-in Cobweb ... hen and chicks (some name tags say « candy floss » I find it a bit tender in the winter here 10. More fish garden art from thrift — leaping thru blue waves of campanula and Solomon’s seal (the tall one) (and some invasive thimble berry native plant). And what I think is Lady fern — this is a good little video fr UBC Fac of Forestry ———- And that’s the tour du jour .
