Woolly Pockets

I’m back from San Francisco and inspired after my trip to Flora Grubb Gardens. I’ll share photos of the nursery and more detail in a future post. Today I want to highlight a versatile product they were selling that I am excited to experiment with in the new year.

GGW Plant Pick of The Month- Tibouchina

I’m leaving for California in a few days to visit some very dear friends. This is an annual visit and sometimes I am able to make it twice a year. It is great to ‘get away’ and connect with friends. There is nothing better than engaging conversations over great food and wine.

For me, the added bonus when traveling is the exposure to local flora. On this trip I’ll be returning to Flora Grubb Gardens, and checking out Annie’s Annuals and Berkeley Horticultural Nursery.

On one of my earlier visits to San Francisco I noticed a lovely small ornamental tree that I have since incorporated into my seasonal displays. Princess-flower (Tibouchina) is the GGW Plant Pick of The Month.
