Saturday’s Plant ID class at Strybing was cold and cloudy (not the best picture taking weather). Here are some of our favorites:
While I’m not dying to have a Rhododendron in my personal collection o’plants, I do enjoy a nice blooming one. This sweet one is named after the builder of Golden Gate Park John McLaren.
Ummm… yeah the Magnolias are in bloom right now. Hurray for Spring in February!
The parental units of this guy are uncertain, but it’s most likely a relative to the native Arbutus menziesii (Pacific Madrone).
Sometimes you just have to take pictures of moss and baby tears; especially on a cold grey day. Hopefully the sun will come out for next week’s class. Click here if you want to see the entire batch of plant ID pics.
