In an effort to study for the Saturday morning Plant ID quiz I’m blogging about my favorite plants from last week. This tree rocks! It has flowers that look like monkey hands. Some even describe them as evil devil hands. What more can you ask for in a tree? It’s kind of messy, but I wouldn’t mind picking up spent monkey hands. Looks like it’s cool with low water situations too.
All this talk about focal points in the garden makes me think we need one.
How can you not love the California native Douglas Iris?
Another spectacular California native. Be careful of the irritating fuzz when pruning.
