North American Chelsea 2010 Plant Introductions…

A couple North American introductions got a lot of attention at Chelsea.  Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’  ( which I can’t wait to plant in the new clay garden I created when I dug out my new front steps) is a beautifully airy plant that blooms over a long season, from mid-April to October.

And Eriophorum russeolum, commonly known as red cotton grass is a cold tolerant (even arctic tolerant), native grass for bogs and swamps.   I am trying to imagine a perfect site where I can pair these two for a totally wow combo.

After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
