A remarkable ginkgo discovered by master propagator Crispin Silva as a chance mutation on the male cultivar ‘Jade Butterflies.' The upright plants showcase bold, highly variegated foliage with irregular streaks of green, cream and yellow. Each leaf is different yet the sum of the whole is breathtaking. The coloration is stable and sun tolerant remaining prominent throughout the growing season. I would love one, but they are sold out everywhere! I'm on a wait list.
The 'society garlic' is one of my favorite plants. I had lots of this in my garden and later found that it came in a variegated version too so I did a watercolor painting of it. I love putting the flowers in salads.
Someone left a paper bags of backbulbs, bulb type enlarged base of the plant, of this Bletilla striata, terrestrial orchid, on a bench with a "free" sign outside of our church one day. I took some an planted them and was rewarded with these these beautiful blooms. I had to record them in watercolor.
