Ted Kipping's Garden
We heard the sad news that Ted Kipping passed away. In October 2011 we visited his garden and took a bunch of pictures. He would always invite folks to come check it out even if he wasn't home.
It was Ted that told me his Fuchsia 'Fan Fare' climbed up his house and espaliers nicely anywhere you want it to go inspiring our current Fuchmansia combo and so many more plant obsessions. He was always happy to give a cutting including that gorgeous Plectranthus I wish we still had.
We'll fondly remember his hilarious sense of humor that livened up many Succulent Society meetings, his genuine love and enthusiasm for plants and sharing it with the community including two plant dorks living in the Sunset.
Here are a few of our favorite pictures. You can check out the entire album here.
