My Wishlist: Under the letter ‘A’

This definitely doesn’t account for my entire wish list…. more like the letter A! A recent creative writing exercise reminded me that this is the genus that I first fell in love with close to 40 years ago, and thus I find it fitting that I should make an effort to increase its presence in the garden. Thanks to nurseries like Fraser’s Thimble Farms, I shall soon have these sinister yet hypnotic beauties as part of the garden’s repertoire!.
