Charlene M.- One of my favorite Garden Crossings purchases.

GC- Is this one plant or more than one?

Charlene M-Yes, amazingly, it is only one plant on each of the tudeurs which are each about 5 1/2 feet tall. I originally had Odoribe and Blekitny Aniol on each but they were going to get too tall and overwhelming so I replaced them with only Prince Charles on each. The pic show the plants in only their second year. Blooms come in June. I cut it back 2/3 of the way down and then…about 1 1/2 months later, I get rebloom that is just as full as the first bloom. Always. The plant is a workhorse.

GC- Thanks Charlene for sharing your photos and your story!

We got some very nice hostas from Rod & Heidi this year for our gardens…we have a very large hosta garden with over 750 different varieties of hosta..I also have some of my own hybrids I’ve been working on…Here are some photos to let you ‘walk’ through our gardens.

Amazing Pretty Much Picasso & Snow Princess Petunias Planted in a Pamela Crawford Basket. The transition this planter has made over the past 2 1/2 months is amazing. Diane has done an excellent job in keeping her plants well watered and feeds them often. Pretty Much Picasso is a very thirsty and hungry plant and does require good care to keep it looking this amazing! Photos by Diane K.

This Garden Photo was Submitted by Roger V. from Philadelphia, PA. He had won 3rd Place in the 2009 City Garden Contest the city was hosting. This picture just goes to show what a beautiful garden you can have when you are limited by small spaces.  Most of what Roger has going on in his garden is use of space by container gardening.

Diane K.- Byron Center, Mi

Here is an excellent example of a Pamela Crawford basket all planted up. The first picture was taken shortly after it was planted and then the second picture is one month later. Amazing how it filled out and is so beautiful. Diane choose to use Petunia Pretty Much Picasso and also Lobilaria Snow Princess. These 2 plants are great together as they both can tend to be aggressive growers and are very thirsty plants. Full Sun is the location of choice and they both help bring the butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden. Thanks Diane!
