A gift from John! He purchased this lovely tree on his way back from a surf trip down in Oregon. (Oregon has the best nurseries, I want to do a vacation in Portland just to do a nursery tour!). I’ve been pining for a Twombly’s Red Sentinel and this is the closets they had. I believe it’s a sport of Bloodgood that stays smaller and narrower. I’m still going to get my Twombly’s someday though.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
