Photographing Flowers with Saxon!
FREE garden photography workshop with award-winning photographer Saxon Holt on Sat. July 22 at 11 am!
An informative, fun and free workshop for
budding and experienced photographers alike!

Join us for the third installment of our popular garden photography workshop on Saturday, July 22 at 11 am with Saxon Holt, one of the most respected and talented photographers in the garden world.

This year, Saxon will be focusing on photographing flowers in conjunction with the release of his new e-book "The Photobotanic Guide to Photographing Roses". Whether you shoot with a mega-pixel SLR or a smartphone, you'll get insight and tools you can use right away to take your garden photography to the next level. Read Saxon's latest blog post for a quick tip that can instantly improve your photos before even pressing the shutter.

Over the course of his 30+ year career, Saxon has been on countless assignments to some of the most incredible gardens in the world. His photos seek the "story" that each garden holds with consideration for composition, color and shapes.

The Photobotanic Guide to Photographing Roses

BRING YOUR CAMERAS! You're invited to bring your camera for a mini-photo session in our gardens and a chance to learn some of Saxon's techniques of the trade! Informative, fun and free – you’d pay big bucks for this kind of instruction in a formal workshop! Don't miss it!

This week's photogenic garden wonders!
Gomphrena globosa ‘Fireworks’
Achillea millefolium 'Salmon Beauty'

Gomphrena globosa ‘Fireworks’
Ultra-glowy, hot-pink sparkler-esque flower clusters bloom in outrageous profusion for months! Low-maintenance and tolerant of pretty much everything - 'Fireworks' will have even the brownest of thumbs humming the 1812 Overture from Summer thru Fall!

Achillea millefolium 'Salmon Beauty'
Peachy keen! Undulating umbels in pastel hues of peach, salmon, buff and butter yellow – all at the same time! Compact, adaptable and tough-as-nails, this fast-growing Yarrow attracts butterflies and bees, but not deer. Super hardy to USDA zone 3!

Clianthus puniceus "Parrot's Bill" Pelargonium 'Australian Mystery'
Clianthus puniceus "Parrot's Bill"
THE plant everyone wants when it goes into bloom! Radiant rosy-red "parrot bill" flowers on a handsome ferny foliaged 4' x 4' shrub makes a fab focal point! Easy and fast, give it rich, well-drained soil and side-dress with compost annually. Hardy to USDA zone 8.

Pelargonium 'Australian Mystery'
Totally tantalizing with extra-large, high fidelity contrasting petals, we are always bewitched when this scrumptious beauty starts to bloom in Summer. And bloom it does – all the way till Fall! Easy, long-lived and evergreen, just protect from frost.

Epiphyllum ‘Monastery Garden’ Mina lobata "Exotic Love Vine"

Epiphyllum ‘Monastery Garden’
MASSIVE 12" pink blooms with a gorgeous orange blush are literally the size of your head! Super easy to grow in frost-free zones, these South American epiphytic cacti make excellent houseplants, too! Majestic in a hanging basket with fast-draining soil.

Mina lobata "Exotic Love Vine"
You don't get the nickname "Exotic Love Vine" for nothin'! This fast-growing annual climber will win every heart it encounters with startling 5” spikes festooned with scarlet, orange, yellow and cream flowers! Blooms for months and self-sows!

Agave ovatifolia 'Giant' Begonia 

Agave ovatifolia 'Giant'
"Giant Whale's Tongue Agave"

Foliage can be just as compelling to photograph as flowers, like this magnificent, architectural centerpiece for any low water garden. To 4’ x 6’ with beautiful silvery-blue leaves and gorgeous textural ridges. Give it good drainage and room to grow!
See More Agaves!


So cool it doesn't seem real! We're thrilled to offer a rare second crop of this curiously curlicued silver and green leaved Begonia! Stunning in containers or a shady garden bed, it performs beautifully in humid areas. Just give it good drainage and avoid overwatering! See More Begonias!

Join us this Saturday, July 15 from 11 am - 1 pm for our second old-fashioned, fun and neighborly crop swap!
