Gardening While Intoxicated. I thought, given its purple, metallic sheen, and dark green, almost black highlights, it would be a hard plant to match up with another. I've found quite the opposite. It's hard to find a plant it doesn't complement or contrast well with. Here it's with a red/yellow coleus of which I don't have the name. I have it in baskets and window boxes around the house mixed with other coleus and myriad other plants and it looks great. Next year, more Persian shield.

James Baggett, editor of Country Gardens magazine was here over Garden Walk Buffalo this summer and told me that you can tell the difference between Chinese and Japanese wisteria by noting which direction the vine twines -- Chinese wisteria vines spiral clockwise, Japanese wisteria vines spiral counter-clockwise. Mine, according to its spiraling, is Chinese. I have no idea how this knowledge benefits me, but there it is.

|Let me see if I can do this - Michelle (WildOnesNiagara), Dee (Red Dirt Ramblings), Sarah (Toronto Gardens), Carol (May Dreams Gardens), Gail (Clay & Limestone), Layanee (Ledge & Gardens), and I think the hatted person up on top of the hill may be Aldona (Toronto Botanical Gardens). Hope I got them all right. Here you can see them, adding color to the Shadrack garden in Hamburg, NY. Wow - a shot without a Susan!|
I'm away on vacation currently and haven't had much time for posting. I'm finally getting around now to posting my photos from Buffa10, the Garden Bloggers Meet-up here in Buffalo in July. To see all my photos, please visit here: http://gallery.me.com/charlierj#100358 . There are much better photos on other's posts on Buffal10, which can be found here: http://buffa10.blogspot.com/. I was busy running around, and half the time, forgot I had my camera on me.
|I won't even try to name bloggers in the photo here. That's Cheryl with the camera.|
