I am certain it would look good with all the purples, lavenders, pinks, and yellows in the garden, but I can't find it. Nobody has it for sale!
Has anyone grown it yet? It is a 2012 AAS winner. (Photo is from their website)
Today I went to Buchanan's Native Plants to take photos of all the Vincas in the Cora Series.
I'm putting them in order of what works well in my garden, but all are nice.
I took home a Titan Icy Pink. It has a frosted appearance and a deeper eye. Gorgeous!
The solid red is wonderful.
Another great one! Compare this one one with the new AAS winner at the top and you can see why I'm excited about 'JamsNJellies'.
'Deep Lavender' is currently the deepest purple readily available.
It's definitely a keeper.
Polka dot comes in both the Cascade Series and Titan Series.
Strawberry was new and very few were open.
Cora Apricot is also very nice.
Here's Cora White.
Cora Red on the left and Cora Burgundy on the right.
Cora Cascade Cherry. The Cascade Series drapes over and is intended for hanging baskets and planter boxes.
And the last one..Cora Cascade Magenta.
Before you head out today, I'll show you some other plants and features of Buchanan's Native Plants here in central Houston.
The sign gives you a hint of all you can see here. There's also a greenhouse.
I couldn't resist one of these sunloving coleus. I bought only one, but wanted all of them.
A colorful display in their bungalow gift shop.
I already have actual raccoons in my garden. Maybe I should buy them a friend!
What's a group of owls called? A Hoot of Owls?
This place is only 5 minutes from my summer job. I could visit every day!
Maybe I will.
My other two favorite plant shops are also 5 minutes away. I'll post about these as well.
It's going to be a great summer. :0)
Thanks for stopping by.
