Rare & Unusual Border

The Rare and Unusual Border

Begun in 2008, this narrow border has become the epicenter of my plant collecting endeavors. It is here, in a border that measures 5m in length by 1m in depth, where I proudly display my ever increasing collection of rare, unusual and choice woodland perennials.
