And the winner is …
Without question and hands-down, the henryi species lily was the plant of the day. It was so flooded with "what's that one?" that if plants have psychologies, it would have been in serious identity crisis.
I also received many inquiries on a scaevola I picked up as a fill-in, and, so gratifying, lots and lots of compliments on the back sculpture, which in the past has creeped out a few gardeners. Not this year; I think the crowd is getting more … open. To challenging art, that is.
This year, I was out with the Ranters for much of the time and not in my garden. I loved seeing the other gardens. I hated not being in mine. This is always a dilemma, and one I have in common with many of the GW gardeners. But I was thrilled to see some of the very best gardens for the first time in over six years. Watch Garden Rant tomorrow for some truly awesome planting and pond shots.
