But there were a few interesting and intriguing plants and plant combos that I couldn't help noticing, including a few that paired the common with the more uncommon.
|Astelia and black mondo grass|
|Red Anigozanthus (Kangaroo paw), which is not hardy here.|
|Sarracenias and red pansies|
|'Red Dragon' Persicaria and red-veined fern|
|Yucca 'Color Guard' and Tulip 'Monte Carlo'|
|Agave (parryi?) and Tulip 'Monte Carlo'|
|Yucca, Agave and red primroses|
|Enormous glass Sarracenia and real ones in the background (also a tiny already wilting Gunnera under the solar light and a Fatsia behind the log)|
|Various Narcissi, ferns and more Sarracenias|
Why do you go to garden shows at this time of year? Is it to see the plants? To shop? To get inspired for another year of gardening? Maybe it's because you just love the madding crowd.
