You May Have Been Pretty In Pink!…..


You know you’re tired when you concoct a garden showdown between your two favourite Arisaema species! I am so enamored of both Arisaema thunbergii var. urashima and the beguiling pink beauty that is Arisaema candidissimum, [the shriveled pink handkerchief in the lower right corner of this photo!] and couldn’t help adding the tongue in cheek comment as the header of this post. I am amazed at the size of ‘Urashima’ – an introduction to the garden via my enablers at Fraser’s Thimble Farms last spring. I can hardly wait for it to spread its serpentine beauty throughout the Rare and Unusual border. As for ‘Candidissimum’ – deep down she knows she reigns supreme in my heart of hearts!

Oh yes, it's Arisaema time at Teza's garden, isn't it? I'm so sorry I've been away, Barry. Please forgive me. I've got a few minute so I'm going to go back and read some of your posts I've missed. Bad me. Love your banner photo, by the way!
